Hoveton – St. John’s Church (Elizabeth Agnes Thrower)

Located in the churchyard of St. John’s Church in Hoveton, this unusual grave marker is that of Elizabeth Agnes Thrower. Aged just 27 at her death, the grave marker was paid for by her husband, Alfred Thrower. Elizabeth died on 25 July 1892 and was buried on 31 July 1892, in a service overseen by the vicar Jonathan William Woolley. Sadly, that’s as far as I’ve got with the story of Elizabeth’s life, but her grave marker is near to the entrance to the church and is quite evocative of the period.
