Grave photos

Photographs of graves

I have been taking photographs of my family graves for many years now. Graveyards are the most
peaceful of places and I enjoy visiting them. The graves often hold important information and the photos themselves serve as a permanent reminder of the final resting place. And anyway, the writing on the gravestones will be illegible in a few years time.

Each "grave page" has a link to the page about that person. To return to this index, hit your browser's back button.

Dear Ancestor:

Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone.

The name and date are chiselled out on polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist, you died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago

Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew

That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you.
