    I thought I would post pictures of some actual examples to help those who are not familiar with the real ones.

    Thanks for posting the JOEV Headstone. One of the Gardeners at Brookwood told me about it and I wondered what it looked like.:D

    Don't forget the Brass markers on a small stone found in the Far East. I think this has something to do with the climate in certain countries.

    Bugger! Glad I didn't put them on the Polish graves thread - at least I don't think I did.
    Thanks for that face-saver Andy.
