Tyne and Wear HER(13222): Jesmond, St. Andrew's Cemetery, grave of John Pritchard - Details
Jesmond, St. Andrew's Cemetery, grave of John Pritchard
Religious Ritual and Funerary
Not a famous individual, but a very unusual and striking gravestone. The gravestone features his head and shoulders in relief and the symbols of the Freemasons and theatrical masks. He is described as a 'Tragedian', presumably an actor which specialised in tragedy. Morgan  notes that the cemetery architect was Pritchard of Darlington and wonders if the two are connected. John Pritchard 1830-1868.
