Long Description:
The main inscription on the column reads:

In memory of

WILLIAM ALEXANDER
MORRISON

LOVING HUSBAND OF
SALOME ANN.
DIED 9TH DECEMBER 1940
AGED 79 YEARS
AT REST

The face to the right is incribed in memory of his Wife Salome Ann Morrison, who appears to have pre-deceased her husband by some 40 years at the age of 29. Heavy overcast followed by driving rain made reading the shadowed faces difficult, as I did not wish to tread on the surrounding graves, but I was able to make out an inscription to an Anne E ?, and to their daughter Alice Lavina on the next face. The fourth face is blank. Perhaps a future visitor can fill in the missing names and dates.

Type of Column: Doric

Location: Wangaratta Public Cemetery, Tone Road, Wangaratta Victoria Australia 3676
