Victorian tomb designs


Oh I simply cannot stop posting things... What about this example of Victorian funerary monuments? Fancy any of them? What would you like to have as your grave marker?

James Stevens Curl included it in his book 'Death and Architecture' see page 363. His caption says it is by Milward & Co from Justyne, William (c1864) 'Guide to kensal Green Cemetery' (London: printed for the author by J. Moore)
