East Sheen, the hand that rocks the cradle.

Large hand cradling a baby. This is a memorial is in the baby section at East Sheen cemetery in London. The first time I saw it I couldn’t photograph it because I thought it was too sad. On my second visit I felt it was ok to do so because the memorial it is both very moving and beautiful.


  1. It truly is beautiful. I'm glad that you chose to go back to photograph it and to share it with us.

  2. Funny you say you couldn't photograph it the first time. I pass by at least one or two in every new cemetery because I think they're too sad. When I saw this pic I thought it was Rodin's Hand of God...One of my favorite artistic pieces...

  3. Thank you for posting this. I look forward to your cemetery photograph posts as they are always so interesting and different from any I have ever seen before.

  4. Thank you Lindalee - if you need a quick fix I have a website at: www.homestead.com/askjeane with 10 pages of cemetery monuments from the UK and Europe.
