The Victorians, certainly wealthy ones, loved symbolism and grave monuments often contained imagery that reflected some aspect of the deceased. In this case the broken pillar represents a life cut short. It is dated 1910 so is Edwardian but presumably the Victorian ideals still held sway at that time. There are many more examples of symbolism in the cemetery that I didn't have time to record. Similar examples exist in Wiltshire LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
