Trumpets Shall Sound!

Poor Betty Heap died in 1888 aged 23 years. Her gravestone in Burnley Cemetery is a mass of inscriptions It gives me an excuse to go back and make careful note of what is recorded. I was also very impressed by this example of a stone mason's art. The wording on the banner that curls it way along under the floral tributes states:
'Trumpets Shall Sound And The Dead Shall Be Raised'

Wow - and what is that postit-like yellow sign attached to the stone in the background?
