Philip and Ada’s memorial in Rectory Lane Cemetery is rather unusual. It shows two figures kneeling at the feet of Jesus. We know that they both followed the New Church (or Swedenborgian Church).  One of their key beliefs is that God would replace the traditional Christian Church, establishing a ‘New Church’ which would  worship God in one person as Jesus Christ. Perhaps their headstone represents that belief.

Condition: good
