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

Monumental tomb from 1856 comprising a carved coffin under an open aedicule with twelve Corinthian columns which are surmounted by four angels, each with an arm held aloft to support a central wreath, now missing. The monument is in poor condition due to the loss of sculptural elements, sinking on the west side, widespread erosion and dirt accretions. 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.
