South Brisbane Cemetery


Time for a visit to another cemetery.

We've seen lots of things in cemeteries, but this is first time that we've seen socks and shoes left as a memorial on a grave.

There were a few angels keeping watch.


And a broken column representing a life cut short.


For the first time in Australia, we see an orthodox cross.


Another first is learning a new word from a marker: Relict = Widow. Not at all clear why to choose one word over the other except custom.



Interestingly, this marker is carved to look like a scroll on the front and a stone on the back.


Finally, a grave stone that has also been laid to rest.


This cemetery was large and pretty full, but not well maintained. Nevertheless, it was worth a vist on a sunny warm day.
