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.
The Lund mausoleum was probably built by James Lund (1829 – 1903) who owned Malsis Hall at Crosshills near Leeds and Ellerton Hall near York. He was the son of a worsted spinner and manufacturer, William Lund, who lived in Keighley.
Poor, part of the balustrade is missing (2002).
