Twins who died Young

In loving memory of our children
Gertrude Maud May - 25 June 1904 - 19 years
Mabel Annie Gray - 2 April 1911 - 26 years.

I thought this memorial in Anne's Hill cemetery in Gosport was rather unusual. A heart mounted on an anchor, above a base of rocks. Note the length of rope. Its significance can be seen on the reverse of the memorial, where it is used to tie the items together. A very intricate piece of stonework!

That's a beauty and probably quite rare, I've not seen another like it.

The thought and emotion that would have gone into that design is vast
