Now, have you ever seen anything like this in a cemetery or graveyard. A real feat of engineering by the stone mason. Two angels support a praying figure in this remarkable memorial in the Redan Road Cemetery in Aldershot, Hampshire.
It is just an ordinary town cemetery, but it contains some unusual features as the following photographs show:

|Here is the headstone of George Greenwood who died in 1884 and his widow. |
The inscription records that he was Caretaker of this Cemetery for 23 years
Glorious captures all;
but those suspended angels are indeed unique in my experience. Fascinating!

What would be even more unique would be if the top one was more than one piece.
Nice meander, here. The child's angel reminds me of a stone I used years ago for a 'grave angel' series of paintings.
what a wonderful blog, Laurie! Visiting this page made me feel a little less alone on my quest for answers regarding the dead :)
Thanks for the effort you put into this.
Greetings from Vienna,
These images are so well-taken and gorgeous. I love the last shot!
I love the angels supporting the figure. It appears to be old, so I'm surprised such a top-heavy piece has survived this long. It wouldn't last long here in New Hampshire, the weather would have knocked it over I'm sure!
