A Catholic woman and her Protestant husband faced opposition to be buried together because of their differing beliefs, but they found a solution through their 19th-century Dutch gravestones.
Colonel Jacobus Warnerus Constantinus van Gorkum of the Dutch Cavalry was laid to rest on the Protestant side of the Roermond Kapel cemetery in Limburg, Netherlands, while his wife, Lady Josephina Carlina Petronela Hubertina van Aefferden, was buried on the Catholic side. The couple, who married in 1842, were reunited in death through two clasped hands on their graves, connecting them across the dividing wall. This touching display caused quite a stir in Roermond according to local accounts.
