A Post Masters Headstone, Brignall
In brief, this headstone reads "Christopher Thwaites Post Master of Greta Bridge Died March 1695 Aged 67 years. ... Henry Thwaites Post Master of Greta Bridge Died Dec 28th 1748 Aged 80 years".

Being a Post Master, not only ment you lived to a ripe old age, but that you had sufficient funds to afford a carved grave slab.
