07-04-1879: Christ Church, Castlemaine, Victoria.

The Church of England Messenger, 7th April 1879, page 5.

“CASTLEMAINE.- The friends of the late Ernest Walter Crawford seem desirous that his memory may not fade. A subscription set on foot in Castlemaine has resulted in the erection of two handsome and lasting memorials. The first is a monument over his grave in Castlemaine cemetery, consisting of a slab of Malmsbury bluestone, firmly fixed and railed in, and bearing a white marble cross the whole length of the grave. The second is a beautiful stained-glass window, recently placed in Castlemaine Church by Messrs. Ferguson and Urie, containing representations of the resurrection and ascension of our blessed Lord. Both Memorials have suitable inscriptions”.
