Horace Brass (1880-1896)
Striking art nouveau memorial to a 16-year-old boy.
This eye-catching monument sits in the Great Circle. It was commissioned by Lot and Elizabeth Brass to remember their son Horace, who was just 16 when he died in 1896.
The monument’s distinctive green hue comes from the bronze relief sculpture at the top. It shows a grieving couple beside a death-bed. The artist was Arthur Stanley Young, who is best known for creating the soaring figure of Mercury on the roof of Willing House on Gray’s Inn Road, London.
