I believe my great-grandmother, Emma Prowse, was interred in Fulham Cemetery on March 9, 1895. The undertakers were T. Cocks and Sons of 3, New Kings's Road, Sands End, Fulham S.W.
Although I live round the corner from this cemetery, it is quite a few years since I visited: the level of neglect was so depressing. I am pleased to say, after walking through this afternoon (30 March 2014) there appears to be quite a major restoration project under way by LB of Hammersmith & Fulham. Perhaps the forthcoming commemorations of the centenary of World War I have put some pressure on the Council to do something, given the number of war graves in the cemetery. I believe the graves are to the memory of soldiers who made it back from battlefields/arenas of conflict, but subsequently died of wounds (perhaps after being nursed at the local hospital?). Many regiments are represented (e.g. Royal Hussars, Dragoon Guards, London Battalions, Royal Fusiliers, Royal Engineers, Army Auxiliary Corps, Labour Corps, East Kent, Wiltshire, Yorkshire) and also from HMS Glatton, HMS Pembroke and the Air Force.
Looking for Maud Elizabeth (Harmer) Harley who I think may be buried here. Lived on May Street in Fulham until her death in 1959.
