In my book on my Hunter One-Name Study I will be researching different headstones to find more about their country origin and heritage. In understanding the different symbols on the headstone will definitely help in this study.
The Agony Cross has three arms which come to a sharp point like the point of a nail. The Agony cross is symbolic of the suffering of Jesus Christ, who was nailed to a wooden cross. This type of cross is also called the Pointed Cross, the Passion Cross, or the Cross of Suffering.
