Re: Wording on gravestone customs #general #names

Hi,

Very few I have found since  1940 in Israel omit both family names.
Either the family name or father's family name.

One I found did not have the family name, a Rabbi with only his
title as known Mordechai of Bilgoray, the family name does not appear.

Another one, a widow, remarried, but is buried next to her first husband with
his family name.

When you start to read readin,
how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,
wrote the readin right?

What is the custom for engraving on gravestones? Is it  common to omit last name when referring to “son or daughter of”?
