Day 172 – Amelia

Amelia Welsh Gravestone Ayot St Peter

“Graves aren’t for the dead. They’re for the loved ones the dead leave behind them. ~  Jim Butcher

I wonder who Amelia was. We know she was the ‘beloved wife of William Welsh’ and that died in 1908 but that is it. Here she is, laid to rest, in a grave yard that is no longer tended by anyone. The nettles grow up around her grave and yet her name is still clear for anyone who stumbles across her to read. What of her descendants? Are their any Welsh’s left related to Amelia, the odds would suggest that somewhere there is a someone who fits into her family tree but do they know any more about her then what is left here for us to discover?

    What an interesting thought. Like the dark yet beautiful aesthetic of this picture.

    it is fascinating isn’t it! It is almost surreal that these people whose graves we stumble across once had a life just like us

    I also find reading old grave stones interesting, wondering about their lives and how they died…great find.
