All together Now -Two wives in the same grave
Out with a local art society, I noticed this headstone in a small churchyard at Rodden, near Frome in Somerset. I was struck by the fact it contained the remains of two women who were married to the same man. He had died many years later and was interred with them. As it was noted at the base of the headstone: "Reunited with his Loved Ones." Has anyone seen anything similar before?
Incidentally, and I know many followers of this blog are 'Graveyard Rabbits', does anyone know what the difference is between a gravestone and a headstone? Is there some sort of design feature that makes it one thing or another? If you know, please share it with us. Thank you.
