Above is a photograph of the recently renovated gravestone of my great grandfather Frederick William Dennis. Born in Overstrand in 1879, he worked as a labourer and a carter. One of his last jobs was to clear the ground for the new Overstrand cemetery. He died soon after finishing and became the first incumbent of the new graveyard.
Frederick William and Evelyn May Dennis had 9 children – 8 girls and a boy. His gravestone was recently renovated by his grandchildren.
