Pair of Cherubs on a Cheshire Grave

In the 1901 Census, Gerald Harry Sydenham is recorded as living in his birthplace,Parkstone, Dorset, where he was a Timber Merchant. His wife, Alice, was born in Frodsham, Cheshire and they married in 1896 at Kensington Register Office in London. He died, leaving an estate of £288, while living in Bonner Road, Victoria Park, Middlesex, so how he ended up in Cheshire I do not know. She later married a builder, James Lea Warburton and died in 1935, aged 65, leaving an estate of £6,249 to her husband.

Nice photos! It's nice too that this is in such good condition, and that these cherubs are looking like they aren't any worse for wear. :)

It it, Jen. A remarkable state of preservation for their age.
