Classical mausoleum of polished Peterhead granite, with a pediment supported by four detached columns.
Thomas Pocklington (1860-1935) left a substantial sum in his will for the care, welfare and education of blind people. This is now administered by the Pocklington Trust, a registered charity. His mausoleum stands on the site of the cemetery's former conservatory.
