The Tombstone is Failing

Weather and time are taking a serious toll on Albert Clarke’s tombstone.  Made of concrete, the best material his family could afford, the marker is disintegrating.  Water and ice will continue to do their destructive work until the marker totally fails in the not too distant future.

Her Carved Headstone

Maud Mary Bathgate Logan Adams was so loved by her husband that  considerable stone working skills were used to carve her headstone.  The inscription is disappearing on the semi-hard 100 year old stone.  Like many other makers in the cemetery, it is being abused by city owned lawnmowers piloted by teenage boys.  The design is unique and the sentiment of a loving husband has been on display for generations of descendants and visitors to the cemetery.

Saint Peter’s ~ Dissenters Burial Ground ~ Broadstairs, England

The Dissenters Burial Ground was closed in 1937, part of it having already being built over in 1894. The gravestones were removed to the surrounding walls in the early 1960's, but a record was maintained of their positions at that time. Many of the limestone headstones are now in a poor state and there are a number of broken stones. It was formerly known as Salem. The children's graves are 5 feet deep. The adult graves are 6 feet deep. Burial charges were assessed at one sixth per foot. Most graves are family graves with multiple burials in each grave.
