This grave is the grave of a young girl, buried across the pathway from a bishop under an inverted cross. This is a powerful image for someone who has grown up in a basically christian culture - somehow so disrespectful of the memory of the child.

If you look carefully at this grave you can see that there are two dates yet to be filled in from the carving - the stone was raised by a pair of sisters who are still alive (at least at the time we visited). I must not give in to the temptation to fill in a date on one of them.
