    Hi all,

    For all those interested in visiting Putney Vale Cemetery, the grave No. is 34, block CS2.

    Across the road from Putney Vale Cemetery used to be, for many many years, the site of KLG spark plugs. Because spark plug manufacture was crucial to aircraft construction during WW2, KLG was targeted nightly by bombs. However, not one bomb actually hit the factory.
    But.. During those air raids, bombs fell into Putney Vale Cemetery and surrounding areas. My father, who worked there for 36 years, described to me, of one particular bomb that made "an awful mess" of part of the cemetery.
    It was with this in mind, that I hoped Littlechilds grave was still in existence. As you can see, an enormous monument, originally for his wife, was raised.

          Hello Gareth

          Thank you kindly.

          The "chopped off" top, I'm told, is common when an adult dies relatively young, as she did. Remembering part of a long life lost, I'm told. 😊
