Trove Tuesday: obituary for Beatrix de Crespigny

Obituary for my great grandmother, Beatrix Champion de Crespigny née Hughes (1884 - 1943), from The Advertiser of 12 November 1943 page 4.

Yesterday I visited her grave at Stirling cemetery near Aldgate in the Adelaide Hills. I was very appreciative of a photograph with the grave location that I received from Gaye of the Adelaide Hills Council.




Behind her grave are memorials to her daughter Margaret (1919 - 1989) and Margaret's husband Cornelis In't Veld (1908 - 1994).



Beatrix's gravestone is an unusual design. I would be very interested to hear of any similar designs.
