Winslow Gravesite

Below you will find photographs that have been acquired through Mr. Phil Bendall. He was kind enough to go out to the Abbey Cemetery and take these shots for me. As stated in the Winslow Biography page, he is buried in the Abbey Cemetery in Bath, England. You will be able to get a better idea of the lay of the land by viewing it from a birds eye view. The Winslow tombs are in section 3.

Next, following the images of the Octavius and Hannah tomb stone, you will see images related to the tomb of Mary and John Whitmore Winslow, the mother and eldest son of Octavius.

Octavius and Hannah Winslow Tomb

Above you will find a “context photo” of the Winslow tomb. Mr. Bendall tells me that the building just to right of the obelisk in the far off background is the Abbey and behind it are the Georgian buildings in the center of town going up to Lansdown. The image was taken from in front of the mortuary chapel looking north-westwards. The tomb just to the right of the obelisk is that of Emma Winslow, sister of Octavius.
