Tomb of James Poole, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

Slate chest tomb from the mid C18. Structural settlement has led to compression and shearing of some slate elements. This structural movement needs to be arrested. The tomb has also suffered from the loss of decorative features. 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.
