there’s a little park near st paul’s cathedral which has a whole row of memorial stones for people who died whilst trying (not all successfully) to save others.
the stories are fascinating yet really sad. well worth clicking on the pictures to read the inscriptions.
i’ve walked through this park loads of times but this was the first time i’ve spotted them. i was actually looking for this
i apologise for hte amount of gravestones i’m going to post in the next few weeks. i’ll try and theme them so it’s not too tedious. anyway, these appealed to me as they seem to show the method of death. can you imagine if all gravestones had to done this way ? it would make them more interesting and more sad and tasteless all at the same time.
