Graves stones that raise a chuckle.

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.
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.


Book Reviewer
(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!)


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.

My Uncles,

Marcus *******

A loving Father, Brother and Friend.

Was he fuck, even in his hospice the cunt couldnt ease up on the nastiness, when he popped off in his pit he farted for about 20 seconds without a break rendering my younger cousin crippled with delight as he stuffed his hand in his mouth so as not to offend our Aunt.
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
