Graves stones that raise a chuckle.

#1
What grave stones have you seen, that made you chuckle inappropriately?

I'll start it off with this one I saw, as I was at the funeral of the g/f's father:

Quite a famous one in Charlton Cemetery not far from the old RA Barracks.

Some 19th century officer was accidentally shot by his batman.

At the bottom of the stone it says 'Well done oh faithful servant'.

Or something very similar.

On Spike Milligan's gravestone:

"I Told You I Was Ill".

As in life so in death lies a bat of renown,
Slain by a lorry (three ton);
His innings is over, his bat is laid down:
To the end a poor judge of a run.

(Quoting by memory from a book long ago)

Here lie the bones of Elizabeth Charlotte
Born a virgin, died a harlot
She was aye a virgin at seventeen
And that's a rare thing in Aberdeen

Not seen myself but I have a little book (Eccentric Epitaphs) so if you will allow me here are a few:

Here lies the body of Janathan Ground,
Who was lost at sea and never found.
(In Ireland - of course!)


SIR RICHARD WORME (DIED 1589)

Does worm eat Worme?...

An epitaph read:

Here I lie
Snug as a bug in a rug

An envious relative instructed that he be buried in an adjoining grave with the following inscription above him:

Here I lie
Snugger that that other bugger.

From an auctioneers grave in New York:

Going, Going, Gone.

From a grave in Yorkshire:

Here lies my poor wife,
without bed or blanket,
But dead as a door-nail,
God be thanked.

Finally on the grave of a two week old baby in Suffolk:

Came in,
Looked about;
Didn't like it
Went out.

In Yorkshire, it is said that the bereaved husband wanted engraved below name and all

'She was thine'

The foolish mason engraved 'She was Thin'

The husband complains, told the mason he had missed of the 'E'

Stone duly re-engraved 'E She Was Thin'

it's true i tell you
