Andrew Blakeney-Edwards' Headstone

Recommended Posts

For over 30 years, Andrew's grave has had no headstone. Knowing that the circumstances which had obviated one had changed, I stopped in Cheddar last week whilst traveling down to the West Country to watch some cricket.

There is now a headstone. Unfortunately, the monumental mason was unaware of the different concertina systems and an English is depicted! Nevertheless, I'm pleased that the family chose to highlight this aspect of Andrew's short life.

There are now three headstones in England - to my knowledge - which depict a concertina.

Best wishes,

Thanks for this news, Roger. What little he was able to leave us was truly amazing and an inspiration.

I still quite often find myself remembering him and his cheerful modesty when I am amongst concertina players.
