Victorian Lamb Symbolism

The lamb, common Victorian funerary iconography, is the symbol of the Lord, the Good Shepherd. The lamb also represents innocence, likely the reason why this motif most often adorns the tombstones of infants and young children. However while we say the most often mark the graves of small children it can also be seen on the graves of young adults, and sometimes adults. This may because the lamb could represent someone who was "child like" those with a mental illness.

So the next time you're in the cemetery see how many Lambs you can find by tagging us in a Facebook post or on Instagram! We would love to hear from you and post which graves you found them on.
