Honouring the (really) elderly

Thanks to a note from Jane MacNamara I learnt of the Flickering Lamps blog, on the history of our (British) surroundings. The most recent post, The Centenarian in Brentford’s Workhouse: piecing together the life of Mary Hicks, is a fine example of a genealogical investigation prompted by a gravestone. Also admire the blog's photography.
Jane mentioned the story reminded her of a study she made while working on the Toronto Trust Cemeteries Project. Jane's blog post on that is here.
Taphophiles will likely also enjoy regular Monday posts on the Cemetery Club blog.
