Viewers are invited to observe the above details on this picture, and draw their own conclusions. Like, why were the dead Children not deserving of nice black marble plates ,with their details in gold lettering ? Like ,why the vast difference in the ages the Children that  died, compared to the Religious ?  Could this reflect the many reasons, like lack of  care,  lack of good food, lack of proper medical care,but a good MENU  of Sexual, Physical and Mental Abuse,   The evidence is certainly on view here!
