Deadman in cemetery

Deadman grave in Rugeley Cemetery

I'm afraid I'm one of those who find cemeteries, especially older ones, endlessly entertaining.
Where else could one's sense of irony be reinforced - by finding the grave of Mr Deadman?

Mr Deadman's angel-monument in Rugeley Cemetery is curiously old-fashioned  - you'd have thought it was a late nineteenth century piece, not one made in 1944, which is when Mr Deadman died.

  1. Quite a name to carry through your life. There's a comic book character by the name Dead Man, who as you'd expect is a ghost.
