    ​​​​​​Yes, Kensal Green is a cemetery that I am very familiar with, I have photos of his grave taken in different years... I also have a very interesting one that I found looking for them one by one few years ago... I look for it...

      Grave of Sir James Fitzjames Stephen and James Kenneth Stephen

      Sir James Fitzjames Stephen, in a steady mental decline, was accused of unfairness and bias regarding the murder trials of Israel Lipski and Florence Maybrick.

      He was also the uncle of Virginia Woolf!

      • I have many graves from Kensal but not related to this topic, although I will point out two that I really like. The first one is from the surgeon Sir Anthony Carlisle, Professor of Anatomy at the Royal Academy. It is said that Mary Shelley was inspired after hearing the stories that William Nicholson and Carlisle told her father about their experiments with electricity.
        Carlisle could be an inspiration model for the character of Victor Frankenstein.

        And the second is the sister-in-law of Charles Dickens, Mary Scott Hogarth.

        I also have the mother of Oscar Wilde, Curchill's little daughter, who was exhumed not long ago, Wilkie Collins, Thomas Hood and many more

        • And this is also in Kensal Green, Sir Richard Mayne, first Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis. Very happy that my photo was published in 'Rowan and Mayne: A Biography of the First Police Commissioners' by Tony Moore (2021)

                    • I've never been to Streatham Park Cemetery. I was once looking for Benjamin Charles Leeson at Mitcham Road Cemetery, Queens Road Cemetery and Greenlawn Memorial Park but he was not buried in any of them. They suggested me to ask in Beckenham Cemetery & Crematorium, Figges Marsh Cemetery in Mitcham and South London Cemetery & Crematorium in Streatham, but I gave up. he might be buried at Streatham Park Cemetery.

                      I see that Streatham Park Cemetery is situated between two interesting cemeteries, Lambeth Cemetery, where Leno and the Chandler family (who died in the Alice Ayres fire) are buried, and Croydon Cemetery, where are buried Tom Norman (the Elephant Man) and Derek Bentley ... I'll post some pics
