RDP Friday: Disquieting
If you go to Google and ask it to find you epitaphs- it will.
Some of the ones that it will pull up are traditional and some are disquieting and others are funny.
I found these and these lines in my search. Some will give you the evil chuckles and others are little horrifying.
I’ll let you decided which are which.

Dr Chard (19th Century)
Here lies the corpse of Doctor Chard,
Who fill’d half of this churchyard.
Delia (16th Century)
Here Delia’s buried at fourscore;
When young, a lewd rapacious Whore,
Vain and expensive; but when old,
A pious, sordid, drunken Scold.
Unknown Vicar (18th Century)
He was literally a father to all the children of the parish.
John Macfarlane (dates unknown)
Erected to the memory of
Drowned in the Waters of Leith
By a few affectionate friends.
