It is at Kensal Green Cemetery in West London on May 21 1860 that Annabella was laid to rest and despite the incorrect spelling of her first name and that she had been born in the home of her mother's great friend Isabella Baker at Elemore Hall, her simple and elegant grave can be discovered in the shadow of the enormous Dissenter's Chapel.

It was on a glorious afternoon in October as I took a stroll through this fabulous cemetery as the Graveyard Squirrel that I would finally find my way to the grave of Byron's spouse.

I say finally as this grave was not one of the easiest to find, hidden as it is by an impressive display of several large obelisks and some rather flamboyant monuments.

That #FridayFeeling... I’ve been on graveyard sleuthing today here at York Cemetery and as I soak up some of the afternoon sun among the old stones and daffodils, it’s easy to remember why I love what I do...

Throughout the world from Native America to Serbia, there are many fascinating traditions for leaving a token on the grave of a loved one in remembrance; however as Yorkshire folk are noted for our love of drinking tea, it was perhaps no surprise to stumble across this memento a week ago!

“Cemeteries are full of unfilled dreams… countless echoes of ‘could have’ and ‘should have’. Don’t choose to walk the well-worn path to regret.” ~ Dr. Steve Maraboli
