Rubbish Tuesday in Norway



In a remote graveyard outside 
a remote village this headstone 
was tucked away against the graveyard's wall.  
                                                          
"Hereunder rests the remains of NN",  the inscription says. 
                       
Rest in peace. 
You are not
forgotten anymore.

I live near an old Cathedral and find it fascinating to look at all of the old headstones in the graveyard. Some of them are very, very sad (infants, children and young mothers). I hope you are doing well.

Just NN? I wonder who NN was and what they meant to the person who wrote the inscription? Very sad and very poignant.

You are right, Sarah. The inscription says, "Hereunder rests the dust of Young Ana somthing.
Rest in peace." This much I have managed to find out. I'd had to drive a few hours to actually find out the rest.
Anyhow, point taken.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Felisol! Thank you for joining in! I love this old headstone. It sure makes you wonder who NN was. I hope you are doing well. I love the post below, too. Interesting!

So glad to see you blogging again. I love to visit cemeteries to see what's written on the tombstones and to see the dates.

Felisol said...

Thank you, Debbie and Roan for being so encouraging.
Factum is, I had been so long away from blogging anf linking I had a hard time getting started.

Anna and I enjoy traipsing through small cemeteries in the Smoky Mountains, back into the centuries. And yes, SO many children and mothers dying in the act of birthing.

A tough, demanding way of life for those early settlers--and no "smart" phones...
