Description"The burial place of Thomas & Elizabeth Callender of Newburn. The stone took my eye because of the symbolism in its upper part. Several other gravestones in the churchyard also have the Three Castles motif of the Corporation of Newcastle upon Tyne. The spelling of the inscription is quite quirky as several letters were originally missed from the names and subsequently added. The mason had run out of space for the place name 'Newburn', adding the final two letters above the others. At the bottom is the worn inscription, now only partly readable: 'Remember man as thou pass by / so art thou so once was I / [so I am now so must thou be / prepare thyself to follow me.]'" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2013, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
