Tombstone Tuesday


This week a gravestone from my Shields side. My grandparents Jessie Duncan & Matthew Shields and their son my Uncle Patrick Shields. The blacking in the lettering has worn away but is still readable close up. I'll need to investigate the cost of getting the lettering redone.
This stone is in the High Kirk graveyard in Rothesay, Bute.

Jessie Shields, 1910 - 1982
Son
Patrick Shields, Born 29th Jan 1937 Died 28th Dec 1993
Matthew McGowan Shields born 1910 Died 1995
