Tomb of Major General Sir William Casement, Knight Commander of the Bath, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

Portland stone base supporting a coffin chest draped with Casement's cloak and topped with his bicorn and sword, all under a stone canopy supported at each corner by an Indian bearer. There has been some disruption of stone due to ivy and the corrosion of cramps has led to part of the cornice being removed. A comprehensive condition survey was produced in 2013, funded by Historic England. This monument has been prioritised for conservation and funding is now being sought to carry this out.
