"Official opening" of the Family Memorial

At long last we have the Family Memorial on the grave of my grandmother and grandfather. Grandma only died in 1964 so it has not taken too long to erect! It also commemorates their daughter and five sons and their spouses. It was funded by myself and four cousins who are all the grandchildren. My cousin Stuart was over from America and my cousins Gordon and Lesley came up to Hither Green Cemetery and scattered the ashes of their mum and dad at the site. After this and looking at the memorial had lunch together. It was a great day although tinged with sadness.
