Yes, there's a lovely biblical quote on it (which I can't actually recall but is something about the winds blowing round the world) plus some navigational kit and a bit about Fitzroy. A very satisfying headstone.

Btw what an interesting site that wapedia is - lots of Upper Norwood facts and trivia.

Hi Nanazola, here's the wonderful quote on Admiral Robert Fitzroy's tomb, from Ecclesiastes ch.50:

“The wind goeth toward the south,
And turneth about unto the north;
It whirleth about continually,
And the wind returneth again
According to his circuits.”
opposed to taking terrapins.
