20 May 2018:

There are eight gravestones in Douglas Borough cemetery, designed by Archibald Knox, of which six are in fairly good order, one is almost illegible and another one, where an adjacent headstone has fallen and badly damaged the grave surround.

Seven of the gravestones are dated between 1914 (for J M Nicholson’s death in 1913) and 1930 and the one for Richard Lace is dated 1945. Although Archibald Knox died in 1933 this latter example is the same design (with a few additions) as Knox’s own gravestone.
