Tomb of Abraham Smith, Hammersmith Cemetery, Margravine Road W6 - Hammersmith and Fulham

White marble tomb monument, circa 1923, by C J Jordan & Son, Acton, dedicated to a gold prospector. Tall, enriched cross surmounting a rubble-carved base. A carved vignette at the foot of the cross depicts a gold prospector in a shelter. The surface of the marble is suffering considerable decay and soiling, leading to a loss of detail. The monument is also leaning significantly. A full condition survey is required to inform future repair works. The Local Authority, Historic England and Friends of Margravine Cemetery are exploring funding options.
