Photographs of a memorial for Dante Gabriel Rossetti, written by Edmund W. Gosse from my own personal collection. Please do not copy or hot link to these images. The last photo in the series is where Siddal and their stillborn child is mentioned.
In the portion where Lizzie is mentioned, I find several things interesting. One, she is never mentioned by name. Also, it says that she gave birth to a stillborn son but according to Georgiana Burne-Jones who was a close friend of Lizzie’s, the child was a girl. I trust Georgiana’s account since it was written at the time of the event and she actually knew both Lizzie and Rossetti. Gosse seems to have only known Rossetti and is describing events that occurred without his firsthand knowledge. Even more perplexing is that Gosse mentions Rossetti burying his manuscript of poetry with Lizzie, but never mentions the exhumation at all.
TRANSCRIPTION: “He married quite early in life; and his wife, who was herself an artist of rare, if somewhat wild and untrained talent, bore him a son who died at birth, and then shortly after died herself. During his brief married months Rossetti had collected the MSS. of his poems, and thought to publish them; but when he lost his wife, in a paroxysm of grief he placed the sheets of his poems in his coffin, and would hear no more a suggestion of publication.”
