Thank you for noticing and posting this ad, IDJ. The CE Warren & Co. ads were usually for the bathroom side of the business. The first CEW & Co. gravestone in the Protestant cemetery recorded by Patricia Lim is dated 1905, but my grandfather, Charles Warren converted to the Catholic faith in around 1899 and I think the statuary mentioned in this ad was potentially intended for St Michael's Catholic cemetery where he is buried himself. The CEW & Co. design for the Protestant cemetery was normally a plain cross on a triple pedestal.
