A quick update on the work I believe is owed to the headstone of Uncle Harold, killed in WWII.
We attacked the headstone with a turf knife and got the edges cut back some. I think some more might be needed but it was a good start.
We brought water and wetted the stone and added some simple dish detergent.
With a stiff brush we began to remove the years of over growth staining. It’ll take a few times and I’ll do some better investigation on maybe some better methods, but for now, I think the progress is good.
I’d be more than open to suggestions to help the process along.
