788/22/10082 Monument to A Wyllie in south-west
corner of St George's Gardens


Headstone to Alexander Wyllie, dated 1741. Buff-coloured sandstone. Above the script engraved inscription is a bas relief depicting a skull to the left and crossed bones to the right; above is a ribband inscribed 'memento mori'. It is almost certainly of northern manufacture, brought to London by sea.
