I have seen reference to Druid graves in the USA but not elsewhere here. It is common though to find graves which record fraternal membership for other orders such as masons, oddfellows, foresters etc. Even in my own county of staffordshire I would say there is at least a dozen examples.

Many of these are 19th century before the modern drive to sterile conformity!

I wonder if there are other such graves as this, and if its a common trait amongst members of such fraternal orders?

Hi hawthorn.

 

That's a good question and not easy to answer. As part of the AOD ceremony a sacred fire is lit to remember druids who had passed over. I assume that this fire was lit from time to time to remember the individual involved. In some ways it reminds me of the lights that are lit in cemetries in scandinavia around Haloween.

Thanks for that Myth.

Just showing my ignorance to all and sundry, but was the sacred fire lit after they were buried only or was it lit again for rememberance or other occaisions?.
