The monument on the grave of Dr. Gregory Paul
Jordan and behind his grave is that of his brother,
The inscription on Gregory Paul Jordan's grave is only just legible but dirty.
In loving memory of Gregory Paul Jordan LL.D.

who passed away on December 4th 1921
His Word Is His Bond.
Liz Chater's comment: However, at the time I visited I found the grave to be doubled up with another monument on top belonging to Mary Teresa Kennedy. I enquired with the cemetery superintendent who told me that it was only a temporary arrangement whilst they interred some remains in her grave. Gregory Jordan's grave will soon be returned to normal.
In the register, which is held at the cemetery
office the entry for Gregory Jordan states "This grave is not to be
re-opened see "important letters". Jordan 24.2.1923". However,
there were no documents attached to the register entry so I don't
know what was in the "important letters".
