Letts Family Tomb, West Norwood Memorial Park, Norwood Road SE27 - Lambeth

Pedestal monument and slab above a vault circa 1850. The tomb began leaning early in 2013. The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Local Authority a grant under the Parks for People programme which includes funds towards restoring priority monuments. Emergency works have been carried out to this memorial to make it safe and its full repair is due to start in 2018 as a pilot for the wider project.
