In 1882, the Master of Loyal Berkshire Lodge of Hope No. 574, was Walter Wilson, who died in office aged 32 and was buried with full masonic honours, including a public procession, at Newbury.
Walter Wilson’s grave was originally adorned with a gigantic broken column which, over the years, had fallen to the ground and become partly buried.
A lodge team unearthed the broken column and hoisted it to its original position atop the grave. The cemetery has now been designated as a monument of historic importance and is undergoing restoration.
