I have found a family headstone with the names of the deceased on the front (with many details), and a military cross (for their son) in front of the stone. On the rear of the stone is a name and age, but no years. If the person on the rear is who I believe it to be, they would have pre-deceased their parents (who are on the front of the stone) by many years. I wonder if there is some significance to carving a name in the rear rather than the front?
