In A Human Moment

Miscellany from the 19th century

Tombstone Tuesday [11/11/2014]


Elizabeth, relict of Julian Pithardo Hitchcock, Camberwell, having met with a fatal accident, the following epitaph is inscribed on her tombstone:-

“Sad was her death ! she met it thus:
She was druv over by a bus”

John Bull (London, England), Sunday, January 29, 1837; pg. 60; Issue 842.

While this is not a memorial for the war dead, I would ask you to spare a moment to remember all those lost in conflicts – Lest We Forget
