Ingold Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

A zinc or “white bronze” Gothic monument to Harriet Dunseath Ingold, mourned by her husband—but there is no indication that he was buried with her. Zinc was, according to the cemetery’s Web site, forbidden in the Allegheny Cemetery, but several plot owners managed to sneak in zinc monuments anyway. They are all still in good shape, with their inscriptions as legible as when they were installed—more than can be said for many of the much more expensive marble monuments nearby.

Because we have the catalogue, we know that this style of monument was the Monumental Bronze Company’s Design No. 122.

  1. One of my favorites. It really is in REMARKABLE condition, and the patina / weathering of it have only added to that through the years. The design of this one is very romantic, featuring the broken chain indicating a life interrupted. Beautiful and tragic.
