A Collection of Bizarre Gravestone Epitaphs
In the Barlinine Cemetery, Glasgow, Scotland
Here beneath this stone we lie
Back to back my wife and I
And when the angels trump shall trill
If she gets up then I'll lie still!
An attorney's epitaph in Willwood Cemetery, Rockford, Ill.
"The defense rests"
In a Stowe, Vt., cemetery
I was somebody.
Who, is no business
Written by a widow on her adulterous husband's gravestone in an Atlanta, Ga., cemetery
Gone, but not forgiven
In a Silver City, Nev., cemetery
Here lays Butch,
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger
But slow on the draw.
An old maid's epitaph in a Scranton, Pa., cemetery
No hits, no runs, no heirs.
A widow wrote this epitaph in a Vermont cemetery
Sacred to the memory of
my husband John Barnes
who died January 3, 1803
His comely young widow, aged 23, has many qualifications of a good wife, and yearns to be comforted.
Arthur C. Homan's epitaph in a Cleveland, O., cemetery
Once I wasn't
Then I was
Now I ain't again.
A lawyer's epitaph in England
Sir John Strange
Here lies an honest lawyer,
And that is Strange.
In a Georgia cemetery
"I told you I was sick!"
John Penny's epitaph in the Wimborne, England, cemetery
Reader if cash thou art
In want of any
Dig 4 feet deep
And thou wilt find a Penny
In the East Dalhousie Cemetery, Nova Scotia
In a Waynesville, N.C., cemetery
Effie Jean Robinson
Come blooming youths, as you pass by
And on these lines do cast an eye
As you are now, so once was I;
As I am now, so must you be;
Prepare for death and follow me.
To which someone, who saw this, added
To follow you
I am not content
How do I know
Which way you went
