Forgotten places of worship

We find that a “Ruth Evans” died aged 27. What other markers did she leave in her very short lifetime?

Dying at 27 for a female suggested among other risks, childbirth. By 1880 it was still hazardous to deliver a baby.

We are left to wonder what cut her life short.

Your chance find of the cemetery at least makes her name remembered once again!

I hope you have a lot more in this series. It’s like you are shining a light in the dark corridors of forgotten people. People like us!


Are we seeing the reflection of a crucifix or, is there a cross in the room behind the glass?

In any case, your journey to photograph forgotten churches and graveyards is a worthy task I am pleased to follow with you!
