Hardy's grave contains his heart and the remains of his first (Emma nee Gifford) and second (Florence Emily nee Dugdale) wives. His grave may be readily distinguished from that of his father by the initials "O. M." In June 1910 Hardy's name appeared in the first Birthday Honours List of King George V as the recipient of the Order of Merit.
