More Hove Cemetery

Had another stroll through Hove cemetery with the “Jack” this afternoon.  Found some more interesting monuments, take a look.

Found this Tomb:  The inscriptions are hard to read (zoom in, maybe you can see better) He was a French Noble!  As far as I can make out, his stone reads; “Charles Augustus Vicomte Pinon Du Clos De Valmer”, The Last of His Race.  The inscription goes on and on and makes interesting reading…

A family Monument, a family history.  On this monument, I found a sad read about a lad who died in the African Campaign and is remembered on this stone.  My Great Grand Father served in the same campaign in a different regiment! and was featured in  BBC documentaries in the 60’s, one of the last surviving solders of that campaign. “Boer War”.

    • Thank you for your comment, yes it is a beautiful cemetery. I will hunt out more inscriptions. The one that tickled me, was the one that said “Last of his race”. Perhaps he should have been buried in a private plot in France, instead of a communal cemetery in Hove England.
