Childrens Graves

A small panel from an on going personal project/comic about the search for my roots. Caroline Sherwin was my Grandfathers cousin. On news year eve 1929 she wrote down the family history on one sheet of paper, this was my starting point, so she crops up a lot (or will). Some of what she wrote down was correct and some of it wasn't. This particular bit is about the grave of the little children, which I found at Christmas when visiting my boyfriends sister in Derby. I want it to be as much about the present as the past. It is taking a long time to do, I think I need to be a little bit less precious about every image and concentrate more on the story as a whole.
