When was the last time . . .

. . . you saw tombstones on this scale made in recent years?

I am going to be looking around Cathays Cemetery in Cardiff this week. By that I mean I had a walk around the cemetery on Saturday (in the bitter cold!) and one of the the first things that struck me was the scale of these angels and some of the other tombstones from the past. Ahh! They don’t make them like that any more. 🙂

All photos taken on my iPhone.






Less Angelic, more imperial

  1. We have some very large ones around here. Isn’t it amazing how separation between the have’s and the have nots are plainly visible even in a cemetery. 😉
