Anne Bronte's Grave, St. Mary's Church, Scarborough, England. A vintage photo of the grave; note bowler hat on man and street light in background. Anne's original gravestone was refaced three years after her death, when Charlotte (her sister) returned to discover five errors on it. The other mistakes were corrected but the age was not. Anne was 29 when she died. In 2011, The Bronte society placed a plaque on the site of the grave, with the correction.

Charlotte Bronte reported that her sister Anne died saying she was happy, and grateful to God that her death was to be painless.
