A curious epitaph for a Connecticut Baronet


This stone is alongside the east wall of Stonington Cemetery on Rt. 1 in CT and says

Here lie the ashes of the heart of

Anthony Havelock – Allan

Close by the place where lie with those

Of her forbears the mortal remains

of his most dear love for 24 years

At the bottom of the stone

She was like a field of flowers in sunlight

A touching tribute to a beloved wife. Hopefully this Romeo has found his Juliet again in the hereafter.

Anthony Havelock-Allen was the English producer of famous films. Among them: “Brief Encounter” (1946), “Great Expectations” (1946), “Oliver Twist” (1948), “Romeo and Juliet” (1968), and “Ryan’s Daughter” (1970)
