Location of Colin Minton Campbell's grave

Colin Minton Campbell donated 500 towards the laying-out of the new cemetery. In return he was allowed the first choice of a burial site for his family. As one might expect he chose a prominent site immediately adjacent to the main entrance where an imposing memorial was erected after his death in 1885.
