My contribution to this challenge is the graves of my Great Grandparents, John Matthews (1875 - 1931) and Mary Elizabeth Matthews nee Elstone (1880 - 1937).
The plot was purchased by my Great Grandmother in 1931 when her husband John passed away. In 1937 the grave was reopened following the death of my Great Grandmother Mary. My Grandmother always maintained that her mother's coffin was very heavy, it was lead lined and her mother had died from stomach cancer and there was concerns about toxins and alike.
