The memorial known as the `Freemason’s Tomb’ is the grave of major Fredrik Granatenhjelm (1708-84) of the Finnish artillery brigade. It was erected by colonel Lars Jägerhorn. The tomb comprises a memorial stone and a surrounding iron fence. The insignia of the field artillery are attached to the fence, as are burning bombs and the symbol of the freemasons.

God knows his deeds and the wretched bless his memory).
