Tomb of Captain John Wimble, Norwood Road, West Norwood Memorial Park SE27 - Lambeth

Chest tomb dating from 1851 with finely carved reliefs showing ships at sea. The stone ship surmounting the tomb is subject to movement. In 2019 the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded the Local Authority a grant under the Parks for People programme which secured funding for the repair of priority monuments. Work is currently progressing on surveys and statutory approvals prior to starting the repair works, which are now anticipated to start in 2021.
