Isabella Oliver

This gravestone/monument attracts attention due to the large scale of the urn like object on top of the gravestone. You can see it in detail below. I'm not even sure it is an actual urn. The gravestone is located next to the right-hand side wall of the graveyard, coming in from the Main Road entrance.

The text reads as follows:



William C. Oliver

in memory

of his daughter

Isabella Oliver

who was born

at Denholm

Parish of Cavers (?)

5 September 1815

and died at Rutherford Inn

12th July 1856
