TQ3205NW LEWES ROAD 577-1/23/379 (East side) Brighton Extra Mural Cemetery: Collingwood, Robertson & another tomb

GV II

3 tombs approx 30 metres west of the cemetery chapel (qv). 1: John Collingwood, 1796-1861. By W Burnett. Dressed Portland stone, polished granite and scagliola. In the form of a Gothic tabernacle. The base is square in plan with 2 offsets and 2 recessed quatrefoils to each side inset with scagliola shields; octagonal canopy with pointed arches to the cardinal points having an inner order to the outside and the inside, lower arches to the diagonal faces, and lower arches also flanking the taller ones so as to carry the lower part of the canopy out to the corners of the base where they have squat columns of polished granite shared with the arch on the return; cross-gables above, the spandrels filled with quatrefoil decoration, flanked by pinnacles and gargoyles; the motif of the canopy is roughly and more simply repeated in a stone lantern at the apex. 2: Frederick William Robertson, 1816-1853. Stone, in the form of an Egyptian pylon. The principal inscription faces east, with a bronze plaque above depicting Robertson preaching, modelled in low relief and inscribed 'WE THEN AS AMBASSADORS OF CHRIST'; on the west side is a roundel of the same sort showing Robertson preaching to working men, and subscribed by members of the Mechanics' Institution; both plaque and roundel by Wyon; Horus symbol in the frieze. Robertson had a national reputation as a radical preacher at Holy Trinity Church, Ship Street (qv). 3: A third tomb, with indecipherable inscription. Granite. Greek Revival in style. Rectangular in plan; the lower part resembles a mausoleum with heavily battered sides; the south face is treated as a door decorated with incised double rectangles and an unmoulded canopy above; the upper part resembles a table tomb, the sloping and simply moulded sides interrupted on the east, south and west sides by panels, that to the south being inscribed, and the top consisting of a simple gabled and overhanging slab; decorative ironwork has been removed from the south gable.
