RALPH ALLEN DRIVE 656-1/0/0 Abbey Cemetery Williams Tomb


Tomb of Jane Weeks Williams (d.1848). Neoclassical aedicular monument. Marble, Pennant pedestal and base. Signed White. Upper canopied section is carried on our pairs of colonnettes with lotus leaf capitals, Inside is a marble group of an urn flanked by an angel and a mourner. The pedestal has vermiculated quoins; the plinth is vermiculated too. HISTORY: One of the largest and most prominent monuments in the cemetery, it plays a vital visual part in the principal northward vista from the chapel. Although described as `this monument and frail memorial¿ it is actually among the grandest of later Neoclassical tombs of its day. Jane Williams was of 6 Claremont Place, Walcot: `whose sudden and melancholy removal from this vain world after an illness of merely twenty-four hours endured with the most patient suffering and resignation gives us a striking emphasis of the divine truth that in the midst of life we are in death¿. Her son Henry died in 1853, `who by accidentally falling off the West India Docks in a dense London fog was unfortunately drowned¿. Located on the s section of Section III.
