Taphophilia is a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries. The singular term is a taphophile.
Monument to Adeline Blanche Young and Thomas Young, All Saints Church, Bisham, Berkshire.
"In Loving Memory of Adeline Blanche wife of Thomas Young who Died November 14. 1922. Aged 52 years. Also of Thomas Young who Died May 18th 1932 in his 70th year."
Adeline Blanche Young was born Adeline Blanche Strafford on 3rd February 1870 in Middlesex to Thomas William Strafford, an insurance clerk at Westminster Fire Office and Eliza Rutland. Adeline remained with her family until she married Thomas Young on 2nd June 1904 at the age of 41. On the 1911 census Adeline can be found living with her husband Thomas at Warren House, Bisham, Berkshire. Eleven years later Adeline was to pass away at the age of 52.
Thomas Young was born in Hackney, London in 1863 to Thomas Young and his wife Margaret. On the 1911 census Thomas's occupation is listed as surveyor of insurance. Maybe Thomas Young worked at the same company as Adeline's father. Unfortunately I was unable to find out much more about Adeline and Thomas.
