This is why you have to read old stones very carefully!

All Saints , Broseley, Shropshire

Although the church was close to the town cemetery it was not adjacent and the
gated path between the two would make carrying a coffin from the church
to the cemetery rather difficult.
Older graves have more character - and more mistakes. You need to read
all the left hand side before the right hand side. If you do you see that
"Likewife" is really "Likewise" and suddenly the stone makes more sense!
