Robert Collins Monument

Robert Collins, who had been a curate at St Mary’s between 1802 – 1811, died 25th January 1812, aged 51, had this 12 feet high stone pyramid monument, adorned with emblems of freemasonry, erected in his lifetime, dedicated to himself and his family. In this stone pyramid he deposited a stone box within which he placed some copper and silver coins of George Ill, also some garden seeds in labelled glass vials; so that when the monument falls to decay the curios may try to see if they will vegetate.
