Rosalind Franklin tomb

Rosalind Franklin was buried in her family tomb in the Willesden United Synagogue Cemetery (Beaconsfield Road), in London.

Funeral service and burial took place the day after Rosalind's death1.

On the gravestone can be read the following inscription: "IN MEMORY OF / ROSALIND ELSIE FRANKLIN / [Hebrew characters] / DEARLY LOVED ELDER DAUGHTER OF / ELLIS AND MURIEL FRANKLIN / 25TH JULY 1920 - 16TH APRIL 1958 / SCIENTIST / HER RESEARCH AND DISCOVERIES ON / VIRUSES REMAIN OF LASTING BENEFIT / TO MANKIND / ת נ צ ב ה "2.

The reference to her "discoveries on viruses" now sounds a bit as an understatement.
