The Anglican Chapel, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

1835-36 by John Griffith for the General Cemetery Company. Portland stone and stucco central chapel of a Greek Doric tetra style, with (now roofless) pavilions containing marble memorial sculptures. There are large catacombs below. The building is no longer in use and is suffering from water ingress. A detailed condition survey has been undertaken, with funding from Historic England, and an options appraisal has been carried out. Discussions on the future of the building, in conjunction with key stakeholders, remain at an early stage.
