Tomb of Maria Proom, Nunhead Cemetery, Linden Grove SE15 - Southwark

Visually prominent monument from 1872 in pink and grey granite and Carrara marble. Inspired by Catholic monuments from the continent, the structure presents a praying figure carried on a tall column and plinth, and an angel statue at its base which is perhaps originally unrelated to the monument. The railings around it are missing. There is concern over the structural stability of the monument due to ground subsidence nearby. Further investigations are required.
