I was drawn to this particular stone in Mount Jerome after reading a biography of Le Fanu penned by Dr. McCormack in which the author describes this stone as Le Fanu's. The very simple description in the cemetery register appeared to support this claim saying, "A Tomb on Granite Platform and 4 Balls"; however, I was contacted by a Le Fanu scholar who informed me of the error and pointed me in the direction of the correct tomb. Apparently I am not the first person to have made the error, but when I attempted to discern the name of the actual occupant of this tomb I discovered that it is unknown. There is no record attached to it, no discernible name on the stone, and the number on the stone is no longer legible.
Who is entombed under this monument?
