Not Actually Dudley
If you read the fine print, you’ll see this is actually Lizzie J. Perkins, though I guess she was considered to be of the house of Dudley. I suspect her not taking her husband’s name was a bit scandalous in the late 19th century. Perhaps this grave marker is a bit of posthumous payback. Regardless, I like the way it looks. Maybe because the stone is pale, the accumulated grime accentuates the surface shaping. The marker is small, but it’s got presence.
