st. george's fields, pt. 2
These are some of my favourite gravestones from the cemetery. Basically, if there's something interesting about it, I will like it! And more than often more elaborate and ornate ones are what catches my fancy. For example, the headstone with the "Be ye also ready" text is absolutely gorgeous. "Be ye also ready" is something I'd consider getting on my stone instead or with "Thy will be done". I also imagine that the fishermen and bag are there to indicate one's trade, which is pretty sweet. As is the last photo. I didn't even realize the fancy horse picture that initially captured me was a fire carriage thingy and that it was actually a fireman's memorial.
Another person at the cemetery, that possibly says nothing to a normal human being, is Michael Sadler. In any case, the big white statue is of him, and as I go to a Michael Sadler building at least once a week, it was quite cool to see him there as well. That's about it from my latest cemetery adventure. But, fear not, there's even a small corner of St. George's Fields that I didn't have the time to explore and there's bound to be more posts of me rambling on about graves. I'm a wee bit obsessed. And it seems like I'm not the only one who thinks cemeteries are something special!
