What does "relict" mean on gravestones?
published by Jude on Thu, 25/01/2024 - 14:11

Having read the recently published Abbots Leigh memorials I was surprised to see some of the inscriptions. They were certainly not what I would want on memorials for my family! My question relates to the word "relict" which appears on some of the older graves. Can anyone explain what it means?

These memorials are so interesting and some have some awful warnings of mortality!  Relict was used to denote a widow.
