Patience Simpson Memorial approximately 160m south of main entrance at Toxteth Park Cemetery
(Formerly listed as Patience Simpson Memorial approx. 200m S of entrance at Toxteth Park Cemetery)
Monument to Patience Simpson, d. 1872, Palgrave Simpson d.1891, and other members of the Simpson family. Stone with red granite columns. Square chamfered base, with flying buttress to side. A series of Gothic niches with granite shafts and rich, foliate capitals frame plaques to younger members of the family, while to the front paired shafts and capitals frame a standing marble figure cleaving to a cross commemorates Patience. The corners of the monument are decorated with carved angels, and there are bosses on the buttress and crocketted finials to it and all niches. Upper part of shaft tapers, with further red granite shafts, and culminates in elaborate cross. A handsome design, surviving intact and one of the earliest monuments in the cemetery, the marble figure gives this very individual monument a particular interest.
