Long Description:
The white marble slab of the headstone is quite badly stained at the top of what is shaped like a parchment or scroll. The double-width grave is surrounded by a low concrete sill, and the immediately neighbouring graves are also ensconced within a pipe fence with two rails. And there is a modestly mature tree growing the other side of the obelisk. The inscription of this headstone reads as:
