Tomb of James Kershaw, Norwood Road, West Norwood Memorial Park SE27 - Lambeth

Chest tomb dating from 1864 in Gothic style with elaborate carving. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse commemorating the MP James Kershaw. The structural ironwork is corroding, causing splitting of the stone. The railings are also being affected by movement to the plinth. The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Local Authority a grant under the Parks for People programme which includes funds towards restoring priority monuments. Discussions are now underway regarding the necessary repair works.
