The Webber Memorial B56/247

The Webber memorial was repaired in the Summer of 2017 by Fine Memorials for the Friends of the Wembdon Road Cemetery

The Webber Memorial in 2008. Being placed in path in-fill, it was in a prime location to be damaged by the council mower.

The Webber memorial is a later tombstone and kerb in the middle of the Anglican section. The plot was cut into part of the path because most of the space had been used up. The Friends decided to repair this stone in 2017 as it neatly complimented the work we had done on the adjoining Tucker obelisk in 2016 and the similar surviving stones of Taylor and Gilbert.

The inscriptions reads: 56/247 In Ever Loving Memory of William Henry Webber called to higher service 9th April 1953 aged 72 years. Also his wife Annie Frances Webber who entered into rest 27th November 1965 aged 87 years.

The Webber memorial is the third up from the centre here, seen in 2014. The narrowness of the path in this curve can clearly be seen.

The repair by Fine Memorials was straightforward to do: the headstone was pinned and cemented back into place. The Friends Volunteers then worked to repair the kerbs and fill them with chippings from Cannington Quarry.

The work was carried out by Fine Memorials on 23 August 2017.
