    This reminded me of Liverpool’s own Pyramid mausoleum which is in Saint Andrew’s churchyard on Rodney Street.
    A picture of the tomb can be seen here.
    Entombed within is supposed to be the upright body of gambler W. Mackenzie who still holds a winning hand. Or so they say.

    Yes, pyramid mausoleums (mausolea?) seemed to have been trendy at one time, there’s a lot of them scattered around Britain. Highgate cemetery has one of its own along with some other Egyptian-themed monuments:
