The original Angel of Grief by sculptor William Wetmore Story serves as the grave stone of the artist and his wife at the Protestant Cemetery, Rome. The inscription on the side reads "This monument the last work of Wm. W. Story executed in memory of his beloved wife". The term is now used to describe multiple grave stones throughout the world erected in the style of the Story stone.
The Hardy Tree: To make way for a new railway line in the mid-19th century, the writer Thomas Hardy (then a trainee architect) oversaw the excavation of the graveyard at St. Pancras Old Church in London. The coffins were removed and reburied elsewhere, but hundreds of headstones were placed around an ash tree in the churchyard. The tree has since grown in amongst the stones.
