    New graves/memorial in Stormwind

    I just came across something which is definitely new since 5.1. Two mounds of dirt, presumably graves, one with a doll and the other with roses. I googled it but I couldn't find anything on them. Does anyone have an idea what they are for? I was thinking of a real-life memorial, but it seems a little too eerie/simple for that.

    Things like that tend to be for developers who died during the make. The toy suggests a child, maybe a developers child died? i dunno.

    I know it's rather old, but I just came across this... I doubt it's something we don't know.

    I remember there being a real life memorial stone in Hillsbrad, near where the dwarf area is, towards the coast.
    There's also that "memorial" of Starcraft:Ghost in Netherstorm.

    But I don't what you've found is anything other than in-game props.

    Interesting, never noticed those before. Wonder what the story is behind them.

    pure and absolute speculation, but maybe something to do with newtown?
