Joseph Lister's tomb

This is the very simple tomb where Joseph Lister, father of antiseptic surgery, is buried, along with his wife Agnes Syme, inside the Hampstead Cemetery in London (Fortune Green Rd). The names and the dates are barely readable. Lister "died on 10th February 1912 and although burial in the [Westminster] Abbey was offered he had asked to be buried with his wife in Hampstead cemetery. His funeral service was held in the Abbey on 16th February 1912"1.
