Appraisal

This mausoleum is of a sombre classical design, with interesting features such as the rusticated limestone quoins and door surround. These features are clearly the work of skilled craftsmen. It forms part of a group of interesting and finely made burial monuments in the graveyard of the former Church of Ireland church.
