History of Rectory Lane Cemetery:
Seat of Remembrance
Next to the Memorial Arch there is now the Seat of Remembrance, a bench which features two sculpted stone Irish setters. It was installed in 1934 by Lucy Anne Foot in memory of her late husband, Brigadier General Richard Mildmay Foot (1865 -1933), next to his grave. Lucy Anne died in September 1946, leaving behind a touching memorial and one of the Cemetery’s most distinctive monuments.
