Clennell Family tomb in Westgate Hill Cemetery

  • Description

    "The tomb is Grade II listed https://www.historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1338567 . For the obvious reason, I cannot be absolutely certain that this is the tomb - but it fits the description in the text of the listing "Headstone. Circa 1854. Signed Pearson of Gibson Street. Sandstone ashlar. Round-topped moulded slab commemorating John and Elizabeth Clennell of St. Peter's Quay died 1854 and 56, their son Luke and members of the Clennell family to 1938"; and the location was that given in the listing. Luke Clennell was one of the best of a vigorous school of Newcastle painters https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luke_Clennell ." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2016.
