Tombstone Tuesday

In keeping with today's theme, here is a tombstone from the Glasgow Necropolis. It is for a stage actor. Such a wealth of information contained within the monumental inscription.

This headstone is a "testament" to a stage actor.
 
 
Here you can see the "curtains" on the stage
 
 
 
The obituary and to some degree, the eulogy,
is contained within the words on this amazing tombstone.
