Janet Frame's namesake

In the Oamaru Cemetery, near Janet Frame's grave, stands a monument to her Scottish-born grandparents Alexander Frame and Mary Paterson Frame. The plot also includes the last resting place of the famous author Janet Paterson Frame's aunt Janet Allan Frame, who died as an infant.

The monument, fashioned out of soft Oamaru stone, is being eaten away by a honeycomb of time and sea air.
