I have been a paranormal investigator since 2004, and during that time, I’ve had the pleasure of investigating a lot of spooky places. Some of them famous; but most of them are places that not a lot of people have heard of.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve really began to focus on investigating cemeteries. I can’t tell you exactly why I like to investigate cemeteries. Maybe it’s because they’re more challenging to investigate or maybe it’s because I find them both creepy and beautiful at the same time. Whatever the reason, I love to investigate them.
Walk through any cemetery in the world and you’ll find a solemn landscape that honors loved ones that have passed on. Accompanying the inscriptions of names, dates, and family crests are some common cemetery symbols that crop up repeatedly on tombstones. If you’ve ever wondered what they could mean, take a look at some of the explanations behind the graveyard graphics.
As I’ve been poking around them so much for the past couple of years, I started to notice that there certainly seemed to be a lot of symbolism attributed to the headstones. This piqued my interest, and I began to pay a lot more attention to what was pictured on the tombstones and less to what was written on them.
Then I realized that there is an entire secret language among the tombstones. They’re speaking to the living, telling us a story about who is buried beneath them. We only need to know how to interpret what they’re saying.
The symbols carved into stones commemorating the dead can reveal a lot about the deceased’s beliefs and philosophies, or at least those attributed to them by their families when they were buried. Grave symbolism ranges from well-known symbols of major religions to the arcane and complex, each one often containing layer after layer of hidden meaning known only to those initiated into certain organizations.
