A remarkable example of letter cutting from a gravestone found at St. Mary’s Church, Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria. I’ve never come across anything like this before, from this, or I think, any other period for the memorial writing on a gravestone. The three dimensional effect seen on the letters of this mid-1800s memorial are very unusual indeed.
