Tomb of Frederick Tillson, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

Gothic Revival monument dating from circa 1870, consisting of a canopied tomb of Portland stone, marble and sandstone over a raised, moulded base. The monument is in very poor condition with subsidence on the north elevation, deterioration of stonework, widening of joints, corrosion of iron, and loss of finials. A comprehensive condition survey was produced in 2013, funded by Historic England. This monument has been prioritised for conservation and funding is now being sought to carry this out.
