Tombstone Tuesday: Henry and Jane TROWER

14 Apr

The Easter weekend weather finally did the decent thing and the sun finally came out on Monday afternoon, although it was a little late in the day, it was a welcome sight, after three damp and overcast days. I took the opportunity to go a for a short walk (about six miles) to Henfield, West Sussex.

I’ve been to Henfield many times, but I never miss an opportunity to go and visit the graves of my ancestors at the cemetery. One such grave is that of Henry TROWER and his wife Jane, my 3x great grandparents.

I have cheated a little here, because this photo is not from this visit, but from over a year ago, one morning when the sun was in the right position to capture the inscription. It is a little hard to read, but the inscription is:
