Unusual Tombstones - Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio
Here are a few of the more unusual tombstones and monuments at Spring Grove Cemetery.
This is a stone tree stump complete with stone ivy.
The designs of some of these monuments are amazing and must have cost a fortune.
This is a very sad tombstone. It lists children of a couple who died while still so very young. What heartbreak these parents must have had. Current medical care would probably have extended the lives of these young people.
So many of the ornate statues are also so beautiful.
Then, here is another tree monument. The names of the deceased are on the base of the tree.
