13-JUN-01 Tomb of Admiral Sir John Ross
Tomb of Admiral Sir John Ross, died 1856. Carrara marble cross, entwined with anchor and chain, upon a cairn, set on a stepped pedestal. This symbol of the anchor and cross on cairn, emblematic of Christian hope and fortitude, became a commonplace of later Victorian funerary sculpture. This is a very early example.
History: Ross, described here as THE ARCTIC EXPLORER, left his retirement to search the Arctic for Sir John Franklin in 1850-1.
