TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: Humorous Tombstones from England

Humorous Tombstones

England

When the great judgment day arrives


and Joshua Fenton Newton does not

emerge from this hole, you will know

that someone made a mistake and

buried me in the wrong hole.”

 

England

Here lies the body of

Thomas Vernon

The only surviving son of

Admiral Vernon

 

1843 epitaph of London grocer named John Hall who was quite fond of puns:

“Here lies the remains of JOHN HALL, grocer,

The world is not worth a fig.

I have good raisins for saying so.”

 

Epitaph of a locksmith…

“A zealous locksmith died of late,

And did not enter Heaven’s gate

But stood without

And would not knock

Because he meant to pick the lock.”
