Angel relief carved on a headstone in Southampton Old Cemetery.
This headstone is one of a pair of identical stones situated side by side. They are the last resting places of two women who passed away within a few short years of each other, one in her thirties, the other in her early forties. Their birthdates are also within a few short years of each other as well leading me to believe that they may have been sisters perhaps? Apart from the names differing the only difference between the two headstones are the fact that the angels, whilst identical, are carved facing each other. Life expectancy was a lot different in the 1900s 😞
