It is a monogram IHS in Greek capitals, where "H" is Eta - the long "E" As there is no "J" in either Greek or Latin, it is read as
JES - the first three letters of "Jesus"

Having been brought up as a Catholic, I knew that - it still looked like a Dollar sign for a moment. ;)

Ah well, with the Anglicans sponsoring Wonga we may see more $ signs....

Ghost, those are gorgeous! The 4th one down is my favorite. I love the way you framed that one.

Hnorwood, love the topiary. :D

thank you thats one of my favourites
I took some more from a different cemetery
but this time I didn't have such a easy time taking pictures the
grave stones were in a terrible state and the weeds were neck high
so if I do go again it'll be in the winter

Love that 2nd one! I think the oldest cemetery we've seen is the famous one in Salem, MA. I'm hoping we might get to see one or two when we go out west.

How old is the cemetery in the pictures? Pretty flower pics, and now I know what kind of roses we have! :oops: :D

the first lot the cemetery is about 600 years old but there isn't any headstone that I can find that is that old any more
but in places the ground is about 2 meters high and there has been a church on that site for about a 1,000 years
Image
I'm not sure about the second lot I didn't see any headstones older than 1880
but it was a struggle walking though that one
