Stone No.460



Old tomb in ruins

Source:Register of Tombs and Monuments in Dundee Burial Ground, 1832

This along with some nearby flat monuments are in the positions which are described as tombs rather than slabs. Due to the moss growth now totally covering the memorial no identification can be made, however, the tombs themselves which were in poor condition in 1834 may have been removed with just the covering slab left behind.

A slab was said to have been incorporated into the original monument which carried the partial inscription:-


Pro thalamo______



quam pieta____suorum (or morum)


______christi sanguini____rides____
