I often find amusing or ironic names and epitaphs when photographing in cemeteries. I absolutely mean no disrespect to the families of the interned but sometimes it's nice to have a little giggle while somewhere so somber. Anyone else find graves that make you smile instead of cry?

Aw Heck!

It's not the name, but there's a stone in Dayton's Woodland Cemetery that features a large statue of a boy and his dog. People have been leaving little presents at that grave for years, even though the stone was placed in 1861. It's usually little toys and coins and things for the boy and bandannas and leis for the dog. But someone dressed them up for Halloween, and it at least made me smile.

I don't know if I took a picture then, but a couple of years ago I was in Sweden or Norway. There was a stone with the name 'Anders Plassen'.

That means 'peeing different' in Dutch :-)

@Savage Hippie Girl , yes I'm sure! :-)

'plassen' is peeing, but also lakes or ponds.
if I translate lake in Dutch it is: plas or meer

and 'anders' is different and also other.

I'm sure there are words in English too that have two or more meanings

Grimonds and Gilroys

Not an amusing picture in itself, but a good story. The Grimonds (the big celtic cross) and the Gilroys were business rivals in Victorian Dundee. They both had mansions in the smart town of Broughty Ferry, and the Grimonds were constantly expanding theirs to try to keep up with the Gilroys. They never did, of course, and even in death they are overshadowed by their rival's mausoleum! The final irony is that both families eventually lost their mansions, and the even-handed dry rot did for them both.

I'm so glad I found this group! It's amazing how many funny grave markers can be found. I'm trying to come up with something good to go on my stone, so I can make people chuckle when I'm gone. I love walking through cemeteries, and finding the most humorous ones. I've put a couple of mine in the group too.
