Tomb of George and Sarah Kett at Mill Road Cemetery
Monument. c.1872. White marble with green marble insets. The monument is in the form of a low plinth with inscription to sloping sides. Green marble top. On this is a full length and width cross, covered with very finely carved passion flowers and leaves and a crown. At the top is a headstone surmounted by a quatrefoil with inscription on a carved ribbon. The headstone below has inscriptions to George Kett, died 1872, Sarah, his wife, died 1883, and their son Frederick James.
HISTORY. The Kett family were part of Rattee and Kett, the notable Cambridge firm of woodcarvers and architectural craftsmen, and the tomb is almost certainly by them.
Forms a group with the Elizabeth and George Kett tomb (q.v.), and the Rattee (q.v.) and Moyes (q.v.) tombs nearby.
