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 is working with the Friends Group to consider options for funding a condition survey of the cemetery and the necessary repairs.
