In St. Andrew's Churchyard, Grimsby, in the Carpenter family plot, is a tombstone almost embedded in a huge elm tree, said to be well over 100 years old. The stone was erected in memory of Mary Boyle Carpenter, who was buried there in 1815. She was the widow of Ashman Carpenter, who was buried in 1786, and whose grave is said to be under the roots of the tree which was planted on the grave soon after Mrs. Carpenter's burial.
