Not As Old As It Looks

In the Churchyard of All Saints, Gt. Chesterford, I was delighted and surprised to find this headstone, whose design and style was popular in the 1700's. When I took another look, I noticed it had a far more recent date carved upon it. 


In Memory of
Dr David Leonard Clarke
a most dearly beloved
husband and father
who died
28th June 1976
Aged 38 years
Loved with a love beyond
all telling
Missed with a grief beyond
all tears

  1. That's great! I wish they went back to the older styles they have more personality.
