In memory . . .

I love to read old gravestones. They tell stories and give us an insight in to peoples lives way back when. However, these gravestones are not only so old and worn as to be almost unreadable but, as they stand in St Aidans churchyard in Bamburgh village, they have probably seen their fair share of storms coming in off the North Sea, weathering the stone over the years. There is one stone which seems to be a family or multiple burial one where all the dates range from 1814 to 1840 and another one which mentions Sunderland, a town further down the coast. Both of these (and another showing the area in the graveyard and the sea beyond) are in the 'extra' photos.
