Default Headstone symbols

I'm watching a podcast about Victorian mourning.

This website might be worth a look:

Totally failed to get connected. Hopefully it won't be too long to get onto U Tube

They are sending out e-mails, Phoenix, so you should get one.

Excellent. This is why I call myself Phoenix- because I bust things.

Is there a way to get all the pictures at once? If you don't know what the symbol would be called it's difficult to find info.

It is quite complicated to navigate, Merry.


On the left-hand side there is a list of symbol types which might help.

E.g.
A to Z of Gravestone Symbols
Acanthus Leaf on a Headstone
Acorn on a Headstone
Anchor on a Headstone
Angel Pointing Down
Angels Pointing Up
Angels Weeping
Bell on a Headstone
Biblical Scenes on a Headstone
Cemetery Angels
Cemetery Death Heads

There isn't one that says 'worn out squiggly thing' though!
