Many church graveyards have similar stones to those pictured. A long time ago it was fashionable to depict the former occupation of the deceased on the headstone.

Lasting memorial tributes to members of a family are still a preoccupation today. However, stylish headstones like the ones above appear to be a thing of the past.

Would it not be interesting to see grave stones with modern interpretations of workers’ occcupations today?
