Tomb of Alexander Bruce, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

Two stage monument dating from 1850 consisting of a rectangular pedestal upon a tomb chest with a relief of mourning women in a tropical landscape. A deep undercut at its base has led to the exposure and erosion of the vault and foundations and a slight lean of the monument. A comprehensive condition survey was produced in 2013, funded by Historic England. Works are being prioritised accordingly.
