William Brunton

This engineer and inventor gave much to the industrial development of ore recovery and processing. Though he was not born in Cornwall, it is fitting he is commemorated here, in an area which benefitted so much from his inventions, and his work on the Redruth-Chacewater Railway. The shady Victorian churchyard here is perhaps not best suited to plants; we would suggest eitherflowers grown in Cornwall (when available, or white roses for the colour of St Piran's cross) - wrapped for freshness - or a painted Cornwall-theme stone, showing St Piran's flag in the shape of a heart.

Chief Railway Engineer of the West CornwallRailway
