Monument dating from 1908 within the Greek Burial Ground. It comprises a stepped granite base with sarcophagus surmounted by a white marble female figure with flowing robes and veiled head. The figure is subject to movement and is now close to the edge of the sarcophagus. The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Local Authority a grant under the Parks for People programme which includes funds towards restoring priority monuments. Discussions are now underway regarding the necessary repair works.
