Mausoleum of Sir Joseph William Bazalgette, St Mary's Churchyard, St Mary's Road, Wimbledon SW19 - Merton

Portland stone mausoleum from the end of the C19. Bazalgette was the designer of the main London trunk sewer system and the builder of the Victoria and Albert Embankments in the 1860s. The ironwork requires repair and the gates are missing. Water ingress is causing gradual collapse of the internal brickwork to the roof. A condition survey has been carried out, funded by Historic England. The church, Local Authority, Historic England and other stakeholders are working together to secure funding to enable the necessary works to be carried out.
