Taphophile Tragics # 38


Thomas Lovell died in 1839 at the age of 39. According to his headstone, there is noone else occupying the same plot. So perhaps this wrought iron fence around his plot dates from 1839, too. St Matthew's Anglican Church, Windsor, New South Wales, Australia

Welcome to the 38th week of Taphophile Tragics.

Your contribution is most welcome. Please ensure that you include some details of the cemetery in which you took your photographs, and link directly to your post, rather than simply to your blog in general. This week, Mr Linky opens at 9:30pm Monday, Sydney time (GMT+10), and closes at 9:30pm on the Friday. When you can, please visit the other contributing bloggers to show your appreciation of their endeavours. Due to time zone variations and overcrowded schedules, some contributions are made later than Tuesday/Wednesday. As per usual, we are working with the Linky with thumbnails, and displaying the oldest entry first, with no randomising.

You may have noticed that I am posting to this blog more regularly now. I will post my own contribution to each weekly TT meme on the Monday instead of posting to 'Sydney Eye'. On Wednesdays, I will post about funerary symbolism. On Fridays, I will post about a cemetery in Australia under the sub-heading, 'Six-Feet-Down-Under'. Join me if that sounds of interest.

It's nice that the iron is still in such good shape!

The wrought iron art is amazing! The wreath-like shapes (winner's wreaths?)certainly are a unique addition to the usual pointy perpendiculars on these old features!

This certainly is an impressive burial site.

You are really going head over heels into this taphophilia, Julie.
You are showing us what a broad and deep subject is can be.

I am enjoying the many strands that it involves, Dina. Thank you for your interest.
