His Excellency, le Baron Edouard Imberty

Prepare for a few days more at the cemetery - I'm on a roll...

This imposing sepulchre is in honour of the Baron Edouard Imberty, who was born in Menton in 1806 and died in Monaco in 1874. He was the Governor General of the Principality of Monaco and the ex-President of the Tribunal and had many honours bestowed on him by Turkey and Tunisia, amongst others as well as the Legion of Honour. There is a Rue Imberty in Monaco, presumably named after him.

Now this is a cemetery worth wandering through. Both today's and yesterdays monuments are stunningly eye-catching. I can imagine spending hours wandering and looking. Perhaps you did, since you say I have more to look forward to, Jilly.

Well, Stockholm is on a roll too. And there seems to be more than us. Maybe there was a need for cemetery-pics ?

Large in life. . . .Large sepulchre in death. . . . I found that to be true in NCC, too!

A real beauty of a memorial! I am enjoying seeing these.

I'm doing the same thing, but so far have concentrated on a military cemetery. It's all pretty sad when you see the ages of the soldiers.
