Here is what I had come so far to see. Orwell is buried looking east toward the rising sun, a bit odd when you think about how pessimistic he comes across in his writings, but then I guess you really don't get a choice about the direction you are buried. There are several other pictures of his grave on the Internet; try google to see a few. Some show the rose bush and some do not, so I'm not sure when it was planted. Orwell would have liked to have a rose buried on his chest; it strikes me as in harmony with his idealization of country living.
