'Cracking' on with tomb work

Restoration work on the badly damaged tomb of William Larnach in Dunedin's Northern Cemetery has taken another significant step with the installation of security and lighting systems.

New Zealand Historic Cemeteries Conservation Trust chairman Stewart Harvey said scaffolding was going up to enable the stonemason to "get cracking" on the stone work higher up the tomb.

"It's all coming together like a well-oiled machine."

The work was due to be finished later this year.
