Dying in Valparaiso: El Cementerio de Disidentes II
Here are a few more photos from the graveyard tour i did yesterday.
I really liked the stylish simplicity of this cross...it's the grave of a non-Catholic Italian...
The Knauf family appears to have died out around the 1920s...they all died really young. Weak folk, the Germans :)
The official company vault of Duncan Fox & Co (founded in Liverpool in 1882), an important shipping and export company at the turn of the century and now a large food company
A little light relief for the German dead (sorry)
The British and Germans got on quite well in Chile
The Royal Navy had a vault...
..starting in 1842 and ending around the turn of the century (on another flagstone)
Probably the most OTT tomb in the sombre dissidents' cemetery
The Grand Masonic Lodge of Valparaiso (isn't it supposed to be a secret society?)
Lots of the British in Valparaiso originated from Scotland
