The Dyment Memorial H19/509

The Dyment memorial was repaired in May 2021 by Fine Memorials for The Friends of the Cemetery.

The Dyment memorial was repaired for the Friends Spring 2021, as part of a wider effort to improve a junction within the Anglican portion of the cemetery. The inscription reads:

EIn Loving Memory of William Dyment who died July 14th 1907. And of Jane his wife who entered into rest August 15th 1909. Thy will be done. Also George William Dyment who died April 8th 1937 aged 78 years. Also Eliza Jane Dyment who died July 17th 1940 aged 79 years.

A biography of the Dyments can be read using the above links. William was a Cheese Factor, while Jane was a bonnet maket.

The memorial consisted of a plain cross, set upon a plinth of three blocks, with a kerb set around the rest of the plot. Fine Memorials of Bridgwater started worn on Wednesday 31 March 2021 and had the cross pinned and cemented back into place within the day.

The memorial after the cross had been re-erected.

The Friends' volunteers then set about cleaning the stone and adding chippings into the kerb set.

The completed memorial at the end of the year.
