Thanks everyone for your input. I googled memorial cabinet photos and there were many with decoration around them like this one. Does this mean the lady has died and given the foliage around the picture is holly and mistletoe could it be  December time. Just playing detective as there is two people I think this might be and am working it all out. Cannot thank you enough to making it look so much better than the real one we have that is actually damaged and taped at the top.

I think she looks to be in her 60s so maybe you need to be looking at someone born in the 1830s and possibly died in the mid late 1890s....just a rough idea. You could be right in respect of a December death.
