OTLEY ROAD, Lawnswood
(West side)
Main Lodge, Lawnswood Cemetery
(Formerly Listed as:
OTLEY ROAD, Lawnswood
(West side)
West Lodge (Registrar's House)
Lawnswood Cemetery)


Registrar's house, now lodge. c1876. By George Corson.
Enlarged 1915, by WS Braithwaite. Coursed squared
gritstone, red tile roof. In Vernacular Revival style. 2
storeys, the upper storey in the roof, 2 bays, L-plan, a low
hipped-roof entrance bay with 4-panel door left.
Central entrance, left gabled bay projects as a short wing
with 2 cross windows to ground floor and a 3-light mullioned
window above; a sundial with inscribed date '1907' in the
gable. A tall 4-flue stack with cylindrical shafts left, a
2-flue stack right, rear of ridge. Right return: large 6-light
mullion and transom window to ground floor.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
George Corson designed the lodge with board room, retiring
room and 'dead house' and outbuildings at the main entrance to
the cemetery in 1875; the 1907 date suggests extensive
re-ordering of this building, perhaps by the architect of the
1905 crematorium.
