Gravestone words

Robin Hyde-Chambers at family-owned funeral services company R Hyde-Chambers Funeral Directors blogs for us this week on gravestone words.

Epitaphs are the words inscribed on a gravestone as a lasting tribute to people who have died. The words on their tombstone usually reflect the characteristics that made them special.

“They’re usually an emotive, eloquent tribute to the person, although in some cases they can be clever and witty if the person being commemorated was particularly well known for having a positive or ironic outlook on life.

“In this interactive Storymap, I have selected 10 of the most famous epitaphs in the world. Their words pay homage to famous figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Frank Sinatra.”

Have a look. See if you get ideas.
