Symbols Found on Gravestones (Headstones)

I was on FaceBook and saw a posting with a web site for Headstone symbols. I had seen a similar web site before and thought I would find it and include it on the FaceBook page. I did a search and came up with all these.

If you know of another web site with even more symbols let us know in the comments.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
