Erected by his sorrowing widow
Frances Head

In Loving Memory


Wife of

William James Breach

Who entered into rest

February 10th 1911

in her 81st year

Her end was peace

There is a Frances Mary Tomlin, born in 1829 who married a William Head in 1848.

The 1851 census shows, presumably them, them living at 7 Priory Road  

    HEAD   William   Head   M   M   24   Butcher              Sussex - Fairlight      

    HEAD   Frances   Wife   M   F    22   Wife Of Butcher    Sussex - Hastings

Despite the impressive obelisk in in pink granite not a lot is known of this couple.  We know from the gravestone that Frances subsequently married a William James Breach.  However all these names are quite common in the district.
