It’s strange the things you come across in the heart of Northamptonshire!  We visited Canons Ashby a few weeks ago and popped over to the church to have a look round, and there was this rather strange gravestone.  Could it be a pirate tombstone my son asked?  Maybe.  who knows?

  1. What Does a Skull and Cross Bones Mean on a Grave?
    The primary reason skulls appeared on memorial and headstones was as a Memento Mori, a reminder of our own mortality, an aide-mémoire, should it be needed, that you too will die one day – death is inexorable !

  2. A stone at the southeast corner of the church bears a connection to the Knights Templar Crusaders with a worn symbol of the skull and crossbones”. It also means death and resurection apparently.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
