Sandstone weathers over time, leaving some gravestones completely indecipherable. It is such a shame that there names and the historical information is now lost.
The only information readable on the gravestone above is John Pearce.
Above is the gravestone of the Brill family. The only name that remains readable is that of young Arthur William Brill, son of John and Florence Jane Brill of Norden Farm.
"Born March 18th 1892. Died Jany 5th 1894. - The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away. Blessed be thy name of the Lord."
Unfortunately the name of the person memorilised above young Arthur is now completely lost.
By photographing the older gravestones, I hope that in some way I am preserving the information for many many years to come. Once it has worn away, it is gone forever.
