Bruce Burge was a 1930s architect who served in the Border Regiment in the First World War. He was last person to be buried in the Lower Cemetery on the terrace. The gravestone was designed by renowned German sculptor Ralph Beyer.

Condition: good

A new stone was commissioned in 1993 by the Burge’s daughter, Dr. Jillian Jones, and niece and architect, Susie French to replace the existing stone. The stone is by the renowned German sculptor Ralph Beyer (1921-2008), who carved ‘Tablet of Words’ at Basil Spence’s new Coventry Cathedral.
