Bowral Expedition

We recently went on a trip to Bowral, staying at a friend's house. The purpose of the trip was to relax, so of course I managed to get in a few trips to cemeteries whilst we were there. Some were very small, others larger...but all had something interesting to offer. The two larger cemeteries have their own entries but I have included  Burradoo Wesleyan Cemetery (Burradoo Road, Bowral) and the St Simon and St Judes Anglican Cemetery (Bowral) here.

Burradoo Wesleyan Cemetery

My partner noticed the unusual text used on this gravestone 
- 'relict' of the above. The word, according to Genealogy Glossary means  
"a widow, a woman whose husband has died and who has not married again."

This scroll hanging on a log attracted my attention.

 Beautiful detail. 

St Simon and St Judes Anglican Cemetery  

Note the ivy detail on the right side of this headstone.

Note the interesting discolouration of this headstone.

This is the first time I have seen a double grave 
laid out in this manner.
