Isaac Merrit Singer tomb

Looking for another non-feathered blip I remembered reading a post by another blipper about Isaac Merritt Singer and thought I'd post a photo of the Singer family tomb.
Isaac Merritt Singer, born in 1811, was a New York actor who is most well known for 'inventing' the sewing machine and starting the Singer Sewing Machine Company. He moved to Paignton purchasing an estate and commissioned the building Oldway Mansion in 1871. He died in Paignton in July 1875.
The family tomb is one of the grandest in Torquay Cemetary a short distance in from the Barton Road entrance.
