Belarus SIG #Belarus Mentioning the father's name on a grave #belarus

I am wondering: do you not think it unusual that there is no
mention in the encription on the grave of the deceased's
father's name? Is it possible the
children didn't know it, or is there another explanation?
This is an interesting question: I don't think there is a common rule of the
text that should be placed on the grave. I saw a very detailed text, with
long phrases to the deceased, naming only his name. On another, I saw a
grave where the name of the deceased parents and shtetl of origin were
written. It seems to me that the text is subject more to the encriptor's
ability. Are there other opinions?
