This Tombstone Tuesday post is for that of the graves of my partner Paul’s mother Nora and his grandparents Johnson and Sophia. Johnson and Sophia are already mentioned under my Ancestor Anniversaries theme for their Wedding Anniversary.
Paul’s mother died in March 1957 and within just a few months of losing her, his grandparents also died, Sophia first and then Johnson. They are buried together in two graves at St. Peter’s, Mithian, Cornwall. This is one of the churchyards that I am the Graveyard Rabbit for and please visit my Ancestors at Rest blog (link in the sidebar to the right), to see the blog I posted there today about the sad, neglected churchyard and closed church, which will help explain why the photographs I show here make the graves look very unkempt!!
These are the inscriptions for each grave:
Johnson and Sophia Moyle
And this is how Paul’s mother and grandparents’ graves look from the main path!!
If the flowers weren’t there, you wouldn’t know that Paul’s mother and grandparents are lying at rest as it would be impossible to see the gravestones in all that overgrowth!!
