QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–434

Should be interesting.


The woman seen here is paying a floral tribute at the grave whose headstone commemorates a man who died in 1806 at the age of 72. It also commemorates his son, named after him, who was a captain in the army and died in Trinidad at the young age of 26, also in 1802.

After having been neglected for around two centuries, these graves in Edinburgh, England Scotland, have suddenly become the centre of attraction in recent times, with a lot of people in a certain literary demographic.

My question is which literary demographic, and who does the headstone commemorate?

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!


Four answers, and all correct! The tombstone indeed commemorates a certain Mr Thomas Riddell, whose name served as the inspiration for the nomenclature of Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series!


  1. That happens to be the grave of Thomas Riddle coincidentally the name of Lord Voldemort as well from Harry Potter.

  2. Harry Potter fans. The headstone commemorates one Mr. Thomas Ridddell.

  3. The headstone commemorates Thomas Riddle, namesake of the character of Harry Potter Series..

  4. Edinburgh is in SCOTLAND, which is NOT the same as England!


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
