In this beautfiul and wooded Victorian cemetery, the atmosphere is one of a world away from the busy centre of Truro, which in fact lies just down the hill. The grave of Joseph Antonio Emidy lies just to the north of a pathway, so some sunlight is able to reach the grave through the canopy of the trees. There is no grave vase here, so we would suggest placing a potted Rosemary plant or a potted lavender plant - traditionally associated with remembrance and affection, respectively - here. The insects it attracts will add to the music of this wildlife haven. Or we could bring a Cornwall themed stone, to recognise the contribution Joseph made to the cultural life of this area.
