BARTLETT
Cemetery & Death Records


Did you know that the ornate engravings on gravestones are not usually there just for appearance? Most of the images and carvings have a symbolic meaning to them. For an interpretation of some of these motifs, be sure to visit "Graven Images", compiled by Lorinne McGinnis Schulze, along with her page "Grave Symbols", compiled by Jeff Scism, defining the various abbreviations found on gravestones.

A question commonly asked is "What is the meaning of "relict of..." or "consort of..." found often on the early gravestones of females"? "Relict" means basically "widow of...", or that her husband had died before her. "Consort of..." means simply "spouse" of.

Much can be learned about our ancestors by learning to interpret what is written on their gravestones. Be sure to visit our photo gallery and take a look at the photographs, taken and contributed by Bartlett researchers, of some of the beautiful, very old gravestones.
