Re: Gravestone over a Baby's Grave #general


Joseph Hirschfield
 

Babies who died 100 years ago of usually had a gravestone. It often was
much smaller than that for an adult. Many of these were not of the now more
familiar, durable granite, but often of sandstone, limestone or marble
which can crumble or deliminate over time and may not be legible or even
completely crumble.

Is there any religious or non-religious reason why a baby's grave
(approximately about 100 years ago) would NOT have a gravestone to mark
the
site of the grave?
