Last time I had attempted a regular cemetery post it was about the wonderful grave stones made of zinc. I had waxed eloquent, with pithy and witty remarks.
That post was lost when my connection to the internet failed.
So instead, you get this this post. Same pictures. Less wit.
Most of the monuments I have seen that are made of zinc are made in the impressive tall monument style. This one is one example. It is wider than many I've seen, a bit more massive. But the familar urn is on the top and it has the base with the family name, as well as removable plates on all four sides for later personalization of other family members' statistics.
Alas, since I haven't been able to track down the cemetery, I will be unable to investigate them further for now at least.
