A symbolic gravestone in Foulden Churchyard
This 18th century stone displays an emblem of immortality in the form of a winged soul at the top. This represents the spirit of the deceased rising to heaven. The mortality symbols below take the form of crossed femur bones, the head of the deceased above a coffin, and a deid bell (the bell that was rung at funerals) either side.
