A Full House

It wasn’t planned, but all of today’s Anniversary picks have memorials in the churchyard. I have only made enough time today to link to the headstone photographs on the Shared Tree.

1895 Southwell · Birth  George Alfred BATES

1753 Filey · Baptism  Francis WILLIAMSON

1863 Filey · Marriage  Newman ELDERS and Caroline Mary FREUND

Newman died after six years of marriage. Caroline took gentleman farmer William HANKES for her second husband and they had a daughter. William has his own headstone next to a Celtic Cross remembering Caroline and Hilda Charlotte. Unusually, Caroline’s inscription faces west and Hilda Charlotte’s, east.
