The mausoleum had become a bit neglected J4173 : The Cleland Mausoleum, Dundonald but was restored earlier this year. Listed and fully described in this link LinkExternal link from which this is a selective quotation “The mausoleum commemorates the death of Samuel Cleland in 1842 and is situated within the churchyard of St Elizabeth’s in Dundonald . . . Samuel Cleland was killed by falling masonry while demolishing ˜with his own hands” the house formerly occupied by his head groom . . . This incident is not referred to, however, in a contemporary newspaper account, where the death is attributed to Cleland giving directions to some workmen about the removal of an old building . . . . Samuel’s 25-year-old widow, who expended the vast sum of £2000 on the mausoleum, is said to have built it high so it could be seen from her house at Stormont”.
