Yorkshire England Cemetery I looked through many cemeteries while I was there. The history written on the stones was jarring to me. Some simple, some very detailed about not only the deceased, but of the remainder of the family, and those who died previously, and of what ailments. The poor parents loosing so many children back then. I can't imagine.
