Tombstone Tuesday: George and Lilian Mary MITCHELL

21 Apr

This rather untidy looking grave is that of my great grandparents George and Lilian Mary (BOXALL) MITCHELL, it is located in West Dean burial ground, West Dean, West Sussex.

The grave of George and Lilian Mary MITCHELL

I took this photo last Saturday during my lunchtime trip to West Dean, and I am rather ashamed at the state of the grave. I have vowed to return and tidy it up, and will post another photo once I have done so.

The inscription reads:

LILIAN MARY MITCHELL BORN 10TH MAY 1877 DIED 1ST DEC 1939

PEACE PERFECT PEACE

ALSO OF HER HUSBAND GEORGE MITCHELL BORN 13TH APRIL 1873 DIED 4TH JANUARY 1951

REUNITED
