The Colsey memorial was repaired in the Summer of 2016 by Fine Memorials for the Colsey family of Australia
The Colsey memorial is a proud three tier cross and kerb structure. The heavy cross and grave subsidence had led to the memorial's toppling, and it was in a sorry state when the cemetery was surveyed in 2008, as can be seen in the pictures above. The inscription reads: 53/244 In Affectionate Memory of Elizabeth Jane the dearly beloved wife of J. J. Colsey who died October 29th 1911 aged 46 years. Also of the above named John J. Colsey who died May 7th 1929 aged 64 years.
Parts of the Colsey family had moved to Australia and decided to visit the cemetery in the summer of 2015. The Friends did their best to tidy up the memorial before their visit. Upon seeing the state of their ancestor's memorial they asked us to arrange its repair for them.
The Friends' volunteers then worked to tidy up the kerb and add new chippings.
