I left off with the mausoleum at Beechwood yesterday; this is a stained glass window within the building.
This particular grave near the mausoleum caught my eye.
This large family plot is centered around the tall grave marker at its heart- the Slaters are buried here. James Slater, with his 19th century engineering expertise, warrants a plaque.
Nearby stands the graves of a husband and wife, backed by a stone cross with the name Borden marked on it. This is the final resting place of one of our prime ministers, Sir Robert Borden, who saw the country through the First World War. His wife Laura is beside him.
I love that window!ReplyDelete
The family place looks lovely, and the window is beautiful.ReplyDelete

i love that window! it is a pretty cemetery!ReplyDelete
I really enjoy seeing these things. That 'strange" marker with the star (?) MUST be photographed again in different light so we can really see it, William. Thanks for another good postReplyDelete
If you are referring to the Latvian grave stone, it is my husband’s grandparent’s resting place. It was loosely based on the freedom monument in Riga. But the 3 stars in this case represents their 3 sons. The sculptor was John Sadler.Delete
Hi, thank you for letting me know. It's a remarkable headstone.Delete
It's good that our prime ministers can rest in peace without security in a peaceful serene location..ReplyDelete
The window is so lovely William and it always fascinates me to see how people choose to honour/remember their loved ones!ReplyDelete
what a petty stained glass window.ReplyDelete
@Tanya: it is!ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: I'd have to come back sometime later in an afternoon. That tomb faces west.
@Red: that's true!
@Grace: it's quite different from the usual sort of stained glass.
