A few of the more interesting tweets tweeted by us and others. Topics include the theft of lawn grave plaques in the Tweed shire, a tweet about the high cost of funerals, a 15th century oak chest, monuments in Anfield Cemetery (UK), a reminder the 29th July was National Lipstick Day somewhere (in case you didn't know), and a few images from the Necropolis in Toronto, Canada.
I also invite you to catch up with the photo images posted by @gardensofthesilent.
So ... being dead is expensive. Learned this week that it will cost $22k to bury my parents' ashes together in a local cemetery. How do people do this? (I can't "scatter." It's not them.)— Kitty Eisele (@RadioKitty) July 30, 2021
Today is National Lipstick Day! To celebrate, we’re throwing on some ruby red lips and exploring about the deathly history of the shade. 💋— TalkDeath (@TalkDeathDaily) July 29, 2021
We typically think of red lips as a marker of life and vigor, but it hasn’t always been so, for a variety of reasons. A 🧵:
“CRIME HAS reached a new low in the Tweed Shire after 48 copper plaques were torn from headstones at the Murwillumbah Lawn Cemetery at Tree Street over the weekend (July 24-25).” #cemeteries #vandalism https://t.co/aw0L0lSzUP pic.twitter.com/ZWJcgmPXbX— CCA of NSW (@CCA_of_NSW) July 31, 2021
An interesting monument at Anfield Cemetery with tile-like panels. To Thomas Cope (d.1884, aged 56y), Sarah (his widow, wife of Sir John Willox, d.1904, aged 63y) and Lucy Cope (d.1875, aged 8y) #Liverpool pic.twitter.com/PgU6zwpZ67— Anna Fairley Nielsson (@annaandthedead) July 30, 2021
