61 Sepulchral Monument

Sepulchral monument is written in preference to Monumental
Pillar as it is evident the latter designation does not imply
it's use. The names of the families to whose memory it
was erected are not written as explanatory underneath the names,
as the names of several families would be rather long in explanation.
