The epitaph on this gravestone is so moving. I have found it to be used on other graves too, substituting the “husband” for friend, sister, brother etc.
In Memory of Samuel LITTLE
Sergeant C 11th Royal Artillery
Who Departed This Life At Netley Hospital
June 20th 1877 Aged 37 Years
May He Rest In Peace
Passing stranger call not this
A place of dreary gloom
Love to linger near this spot
It is my husband’s tomb
