In this photograph, please observe the variety of sizes of gravestones. Smaller gravestones are mostly children or young persons who have died and in some time periods, large monuments meant the family was well to do or important in the community.

Some of the largest single gravestones are reserved for the clergy who are buried in a plot like this as the inscription is often lengthy and ornate.
