About the memorial: A hexagonal shrine of white stone with a dome set in the middle of a wall. Inside the shrine is a cross in Sicilian limestone, inlaid with Sicilian mosaics. As the photos of the explanatory signs indicate, the inspiration is the superb cathedral at Monreale near Palermo.The bronze memorial tablets are set into the curved walls at the back of the shrine and these are framed with Sicilian mosaics. A superb memorial, easily missed as it is in the courtyard of the building donated to the town by William Chambers and now the town offices. And three cheers to the council for the sign telling people to treat it with respect, and not as a place to sit ansd eat your lunch.
