William Trigg Hale (died 10th June 1903)

William died suddenly at 68 Derby Road. Husband of Catherine Hale.

The headstone is quite worn but it was carved by T Quayle. On the internet it states that the lettering of "VITA" is surely Knox's. However, this Art Nouveau lettering was popular at the time.

According to Tim Quayle (a descendant of Thomas Quayle the stonemason) stated the lettering is not by Knox and he put this remark on the back of a set of photographs at the Manx Museum.
