The Humphreys Memorial B10/111

The Humphreys Memorial was repaired in September of 2013 by Fine Memorials and the Friend's Maintenance Volunteers

The memorial as found when we first surveyed the cemetery in 2008

The inscription on this memorial reads: In Loving Memory of Edwin Humphreys the beloved husband of Elizabeth Humphreys who died April 12th 1924 aged 72 years. In Loving Memory of Elizabeth Humphreys the beloved wife of Edwin Humphreys who died Sept. 4th 1927 aged 75 years. Peace Perfect Peace.

As part of the wider effort to tidy the area along the main path near the Wembdon Road entrance, memorial 111, a simple memorial cross commemorating the Humphreys family was re-erected. As the Cottam memorial 114 was being conserved at the benevolence of Mr Gibson it was felt that its the entire row should be repaired to compliment it, as well as generally improving the look of the cemetery from the main road. The base was reset due to heavy subsidence, then the cross was pinned back into the base.
