I thought I would start the New Year with a most unusual epitaph that I recently discovered whilst visiting Warrington Cemetery. Thanks to a helpful Supervisor, who pointed out this headstone when I asked him if there were any monuments of particular interest. Unfortunately he could give me no more information about the particulars of this most unusual epitaph.


  1. Very strange! Makes you wonder why they thought it was needed on the stone at all!
