The National Trust was thrilled to assist members of the Dyson family with conservation works to their ancestors’ headstone.


Located in East Perth Cemeteries, the headstone commemorates James Dyson and his two wives, Fanny Hoffington and Jane Edwards. It was commissioned by Andrew “Drewey” Dyson after the death of his mother Jane in 1899. Unfortunately, after 120 years exposed to the elements, the marble headstone had broken in half and the lead-lettering was worn away.
