Tombstone Tuesday

Rupert George Weeks and Violet Rollason - my great-Grandparents


Rupert died in 1921 of tuberculosis, one of the many who died of this disease before the introduction of antibiotics post WW2. His wife Violet never remarried and died 46 years later. The below photo of them is their wedding day, 7 April 1909. Rupert was very tall while Violet is quite small (maybe the person from whom I inherited my short gene!)
