giving on to terraced burial ground, has ashlar plinth and sill bands and plain
band defining the pediment flanked by blocking dies. Ashlar well lettered date
plaque. The first floor windows take the form of fan glazed lunettes. The
ground floor has 2 simple squared jamb windows and 2 squared jamb gallery
staircase doors flanking the main entrance. The latter given more importance in

squared jamb windows to lower and ground floors, with rounded heads on top floor;
