Exterior

Later C19 memorial in grey granite, comprising a raised pedestal with moulded cap some 3m long on which stands, centrally, a slim granite cross with pedestal, octagonal shaft, cap and foliated head. From each side extends a low broad granite platform with moulded plinth and three ridge-backed and hipped-ended granite slabs, each with an inscription on the S sloping side and an incised encircled star on the end slope. The pedestal has an incised trefoil on each end. The inscriptions commemorate on the W side: Hart Logan (d.1873); Sir Williams Logan (d.1871); and Abel Lewes Gower of Castle Malgwyn (d.1849). On the E side the first is uninscribed; then Louisa Stewart of Rhosygilwen (d.1877); and Elizabeth Gower, nee Logan (d.1876). On the pedestal end is an added plaque of 1975 commemorating Sir William Logan's work on the Geological Survey of Canada 1847-69.

Low outer granite plinth with ornate low iron rails.
