A beautiful headstone in memory of a good man - Tony Wilson

Factory Records founder Anthony H Wilson died in August 2007. Just over three years later, a memorial headstone designed collaboratively by Wilson's long-term associates Peter Saville and Ben Kelly with Paul Barnes and Matt Robertson, was unveiled in The Southern Cemetery in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester.

Peter Saville the designer of the iconic album art for Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures and the England Football team emblem along with Ben Kelly, designed this amazing work of art, placed in the cemetery in memory of Tony Wilson. I encourage you to follow that link to discover what a huge influence Tony had on his hometown and the Manchester music scene.

Another view of the headstone and here's a close up of the inscription. And there's more of the story here.
