John Elliott, 1825-1885, headstone then and now

Grave of John Elliott - photo taken approx 1895-1900

Grave of John Elliott as it appears currently

This headstone is in the St Peter's church cemetery, in Tankersley, Yorkshire, England.  Originally the stone stood upright, but it has either fallen or was moved to lie flat on the ground.  I'm guessing that mowing the grass is much easier with the headstone laying flat.  See my post from November 6, 2012, to see photos of John Elliott.
