|Bio and Links|
Musician, ex-librarian, and from time to time dog handler, upholsterer of sports cars, and mender of fishing nets.|
I am almost the last living member of two old-established families, one Scottish, the other from Yorkshire, and married into a fascinatingly convoluted Kentish family.
A graveyard fan since childhood, I have early memories of making tours with my mother to collect epitaphs. Special interests: graves before 1914, the last resting places of musicians, and war graves in non-military cemeteries. I enjoy memorial photography, particularly of 'memento mori' or 'danse macabre' markers, and wish that I had paid more attention in Latin at school.
Please leave a message, if you wish - I delete them when I have read and acted upon them.
Please DO NOT copy photos or biographies from the memorials I have entered, for whatever purpose and however attributed. I assert my copyright in all such content. Consider using the Virtual Cemetery facility or linking instead. Facts such as names, dates and inscriptions are, of course, in the public domain. Thank you.
