Tomb of John Gibson, Harrow Road, Kensal Green Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

Gothic style tomb of architect John Gibson d.1859, designed by the architect himself. There is severe erosion of the upper registers and widening of joints. Tree works are also required to minimise the risk of damage from overhanging branches. 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.
