Conserved Summer 2014 by Fine Memorials for the Friends of the Wembdon Road Cemetery
The Board/Akerman memorial was once the tallest in the cemetery, a slender, lofty gothic spire-obelisk, which had been unnecessarily dismantled and broken in the process. It was made of a fine white marble. The Friends decided to have this memorial repaired as part of our focus on improving the appearance of the cemetery along the main path, but also as this giant can be seen from almost all corners of the cemetery, not least from the Wembdon Road.
As the base was in perfect order all Fine Memorials needed to do was to pin and mortar the two sections of the obelisk back into place.
