Tomb of John and Virginia Schilizzi, Norwood Road, West Norwood Memorial Park SE27 - Lambeth

Monument dating from 1908 within the Greek Burial Ground. It comprises a stepped granite base with sarcophagus surmounted by a white marble female figure with flowing robes and veiled head. The figure is subject to movement and is now close to the edge of the sarcophagus. 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.
