Fingers pointing Upwards

In revisiting my folder of images taken in Fleetwood Cemetery earlier this year, I came across one of the most ornate representations of a finger pointing heavenwards I have seen. It is on the headstone that marks the grave of Richard Price who died in 1875.

I then came across another on the grave of Matthew Till who died in 1920. Here, the message clasped in the hand is pretty stark. It simply states: "We Shall Meet".

These are so simply pretty, even in their ornateness.

This is so interesting! What a unique interest you have, and I must say that it has rubbed off on me! I will refer to your blog anytime I am curious about any such subject.

I came across this same reference to the hand pointed heavenward in a small graveyard near where I grew up. It was the first that I'd seen it. Thank you for the wonderful pictures. I'm not an official Graveyard Rabbit, as I cover more than graveyards, but they are one of my passions and I appreciate your work at photographing them.
