The Mausolea & Monuments Trust

Lund Mausoleum

The Lund mausoleum is next to that of the Butterfields and it too makes use of the steep slope in this part of the cemetery. The burial chamber is enclosed in a square stone building entered via the lower path, while its flat roof forms a terrace at the level of the upper path. An obelisk stands in the centre of this terrace and the space is enclosed with a balustrade.

Condition

Poor, part of the balustrade is missing (2002).
