Trickett’s Triumpth

Trickett’s Triumpth

Erected 1916. Demolished 1982.

A superb marble obelisk. Installed on the grave of Edward Trickett, an elderly gentleman who had come from Sydney to Uralla to visit his son. They decided to dig a mineshaft. It collapsed. The old man perished, which is why he is buried in Uralla rather than his “home town” Sydney. The grave is in the isolated Salvation Army section of the cemetery, away from everything else, except the morning sunlight and the frosts, in the rarely visited north east corner near a ragged stand of gum trees.
