In proud memory of a beloved son and brother loved by all  Mum, Dad, brothers and sisters
The letters T N Ts B H at the bottom of a Jewish gravestone are from the words tehi nafsho tserurah
betseror hachajjim
meaning May his soul be bound up in the bond of everlasting life.
Translation from Eduard Hartogsohn.
