Harry Ernest & Annie Meadows

Grave Number 618

This photo is of Harry Ernest and Annie Meadows. Both were born in Beccles, Suffolk, Harry Ernest in 1881 and Annie 1879.  Harry was a stereotyper at John Dickinson’s in Apsley and they lived in Beech Drive, Berkhamsted.  The inscription on the foot tablet is:

‘In Loving Memory of our father and mother: Harry Ernest Meadows died 20th January 1943 and Annie Meadows died 14th July 1952.’

Information kindly provided by Angela Hadaway, grand-daughter of the above.

James Moir & Ann Masat met Angela and her husband by chance in the Cemetery on 16th March 2016. Interestingly, Angela brought with her (and donated) a photograph of the grave as it was in 1955 – the deterioration is noticeable after 60 years , but also what the grave could be restored to with the  necessary care and attention.
