Tomb of Jeremiah Crutchley, Lee Terrace, St Margaret's Old Churchyard SE13 - Lewisham

Elegant composition formed by a chest tomb over a smaller sarcophagus with lion's feet and elaborate carving of garlanded cherub's head dating from 1752. The monument has lost its railings, back plates and inscription panels and vegetation growth is causing further damage. A condition survey has been prepared, with funding from Historic England, and funding for repair and restoration works has been secured through a Section 106 agreement.
