Purves Headstone in Lennel Kirkyard

Robertson Memorials of Kelso has been working away at reinstating the Purves headstone at Lennel Kirk Yard (Crimean War hero, Charge of the Light Brigade 1854) and the project will largely be completed on 14th November 2012.

As usual, visitors to the headstone are advised not to touch it until it settles. Vice President of the Society, Will Murray, advised society members and others on Thursday evening of the progress. This concludes a worthwhile project that was badly in need of progress. Well done Coldstream for rallying around, especially funders and supporters. The alternative was a headstone lying and decaying by the year.
