I grew up in Watford Hertfordshire and learnt of this " legend " from an early age...A place - a grave, I would often pass by, to stop, or just ponder over in the sidings - walk - along of St Mary's Church yard....



The Inscription says...." The Tree is famous on account of the legend of the lady buried in the vault, who was an atheist, and on her death - bed is reported to have expressed a wish that if there were a God a Fig Tree might grow from her heart...
...and it did...Here is the " Our Watford History's  " explanation for you to judge for yourself.....Link...to story...

" Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and untroubled joy.  Do not, therefore, trouble them, do not torture them, do not deprive them of their joy, do not go against God's intent. " ~  Fyodor Mikhail Dostoyevski.
