Braddan

This very famous Manx Grave in the New Kirk Braddan Cemetery is that of Manx Illustrator and designer Archibald Knox (1864 to 1933).

Archibald Knox was born in nearby Cronkbourne Village and he grew up being inspired by intricately carved patterns in Celtic Stones of Mann.

The beautiful wording on his gravestone reads “A humble servant of God in the ministry of the beautiful”

His work still lives on to this day in the form of the world famous Archibald Knox Jewelry.
