Anne Bronte - Anne Bronte's Gravestone Corrected After 164 Years
An error on British literary icon Anne Bronte's gravestone has finally been corrected, 164 years after her death.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall author died in 1849, aged 29, after a battle with tuberculosis, and she was buried at St. Mary's Churchyard in Scarborough, England.
However, the headstone listed her age at the time of her passing as 28 - and it's only now that Bronte's final resting place has been given a new plaque to amend the mistake.
A special service of dedication took place over the weekend (27-28Apr13), when officials from The Bronte Society unveiled a corrected version beside the original gravestone.
Anne is the only member of the famous Bronte sisters who was not laid to rest at the family home in Haworth in England.
