As a Monumental Mason there is nothing more than I enjoy and that is finding and seeing with my own eyes the beauty and the craftmanship in the old style tombstones. There are a couple of old Monumental Masonry companies that crop up when I am out looking or researching old Tombstones sadly they are not running anymore: R. Cane & Sons. and C.D. Wells I would like to think that one day more and more people will revert back to the old style tombstones as you can see they are still very readable even after a couple of hundred years and more, they will be there long after we have gone, and the family history will be there and carry on forever! Here are a few pictures of Old Tombstones that I have found out & about, I hope you like them? If you are interested in having an old style tombstone, I can reproduce all old style tombstones. If anyone like me likes the old style and you have happened to of taken pictures of older style “Hand Carved” tombstones in South Africa, please share and I will add them to my site.
