Having been brought up not many yards down the road from Brompton Cemetary in the 1950's and having close members of my family buried there, I was saddened, after a recent visit, to see how neglected the grounds are. I now live in Northampton and do not get to London more than once or twice a year. The cemetary was once full of flowers and the graves tended to, I always visited my nan and grandad's grave every sunday to "have a chat" and keep the grave nice. Perhaps, like me, most locals have moved away. I would like to think that is the case. Which is why only tourists and newcomers to the district find it a place of interest, which monumentally and historically it most certainly is. It is now my intention to visit more often!
