An error in the headstone of British novelist and poet, Anne Bronte’s, grave has finally been corrected after 164 years of her passing.
Bronte who is credited with two novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, died on 28 May, 1849 in Scarborough, after battling pulmonary tuberculosis. She was 29. But the headstone at her grave in St Mary’s Churchyard said that she was 28.
Keeping in tune with her approaching 164th death anniversary, a new plaque with her correct age was unveiled during a service, according to BBC News.
