The Barlow Memorial

The very striking Barlow Memorial can be found in Bradford's Undercliffe Cemetery. It depicts a reclining mother holding a small baby in her arms. It commemorates Anne Wagstaff Barlow (1834-1867) and her daughter Sarah Elizabeth who survived just a few weeks after her birth in 1859. Some say it illustrates the perils of childbirth in Victorian times.

Looks stunning though a shame it is eroding.

An illustrated look at the World of Graveyards and Cemeteries. There are many Stories behind the Stones that Stand in them. Who knows what we might find?
