804-/14/10009 Monument to John
Crosier, about ten yards
north-west of chancel of
St Giles' Church
Monument to John Crosier, ob. 1801. Portland stone tomb chest with pyramidal cover
surmounted by a fluted urn upon a square plinth. Each corner of the tomb chest is shouldered.
The railings that once enclosed the tomb have gone. The short inscription ends with the
couplet: Praises on Tombs are Trifles vainly spent/ Man's Good Life is his Best Monument. At
the time of inspection the monument is in very poor condition: weathering, vegetation and the
exposure of cramps have led to extensive cracking.
