Graveyard Humor

Be careful what you inscribe on a tombstone. Here are some funny ones!



Anna Wallace
The children of Israel wanted bread
And the Lord sent them manna,
Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife,
And the Devil sent him Anna.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Sir John Strange
Here lies an honest lawyer,
And that is Strange.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Sacred to the memory of
my husband John Barnes
who died January 3, 1803
His comely young widow, aged 23, has
many qualifications of a good wife, and
yearns to be comforted.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Here lies an Atheist
All dressed up
And no place to go.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Ann Mann
Here lies Ann Mann,
Who lived an old maid
But died an old Mann.
Dec. 8, 1767


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Russell J. Larsen buried in Logan, Ut.

Two things I love most,
good horses and beautiful women,
And when I die I hope they tan this old hide of mine
and make it into a ladies riding saddle,
So I can rest in peace
between the two things I love


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



In Memory of Beza Wood
Departed this life
Nov. 2, 1837
Aged 45 yrs.
Here lies one Wood
Enclosed in wood
One Wood
Within another.
The outer wood
Is very good:
We cannot praise
The other.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



When the great judgement day arrives
and Joshua Fenton Newton does not emerge from this hole,
you will know that someone made a mistake
and buried me in the wrong hole.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



From La Pointe, Wis.

To the Memory of Abraham Beaulieu
Born 15 September 1822
Accidentally shot 4th April 1844
As a mark of affection from his brother.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Burlington Vt.



She lived with her husband fifty years
And died in the confident hope of a better life.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Here lies my wife:
Here let her lie!
Now she's at rest
And so am I.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Here Lies Mary Smith
Silent At Last

  • It seemed like a good idea at the time...

Posted 07 October 2004 - 05:45 PM

Playing with names in a Ruidoso, New Mexico, cemetery:
Here lies
Johnny Yeast
Pardon me
For not rising.


Memory of an accident in a Uniontown, Pennsylvania cemetery:
Here lies the body
of Jonathan Blake
Stepped on the gas
Instead of the brake.


In a Silver City, Nevada, cemetery:
Here lays Butch,
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger,
But slow on the draw.


Lester Moore was a Wells, Fargo Co. station agent for Naco, Arizona in the cowboy days of the 1880's. He's buried in the Boot Hill Cemetery in Tombstone, Arizona:
Here lies Lester Moore
Four slugs from a .44
No Les No More.


In a Georgia cemetery:
"I told you I was sick!"

On Margaret Daniels grave at Hollywood Cemetery Richmond, Virginia:
She always said her feet were killing her
but nobody believed her.


In a cemetery in Hartscombe, England:
On the 22nd of June
- Jonathan Fiddle -
Went out of tune.


Anna Hopewell's grave in Enosburg Falls, Vermont has an epitaph that sounds like something from a Three Stooges movie:
Here lies the body of our Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
But the skin of the thing that made her go.


The grave of Ellen Shannon in Girard, Pennsylvania is almost a consumer tip:
Who was fatally burned
March 21, 1870
by the explosion of a lamp
filled with "R.E. Danforth's
Non-Explosive Burning Fluid"


Oops! Harry Edsel Smith of Albany, New York:
Born 1903--Died 1942
Looked up the elevator shaft to see if
the car was on the way down. It was.

  • We should respect a person not because who they are, but what they do with their life, is the way they earn our respect.

Funny! If those are real then they sure had good sense of humors!
