Tomb of Joseph Westwood, Southern Grove, Tower Hamlets Cemetery E3 - Tower Hamlets

One of the most prominent monuments within the cemetery given its design and location, this stone cross dates from circa 1883. It is in poor condition due to general decay and the loss of parts of its low railings, tiles, finials and other detailing. The Local Authority commissioned a monument safety survey in 2019. The Friends of the cemetery have recently received a grant offer from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which will see a heritage officer employed and a Conservation Plan for the cemetery carried out.
