Acton Cemetery

Acton is typical of so many suburban cemeteries: opened in 1895, it missed the great flowering of Victorian necropoleis and is, inevitably it seems, dull, flat and delineated by a railway line. But here and there, some quirkinesses catch the eye: Mr Reynold's trumpet, and Mr Perry''s cross emerging from a lifebelt (he drowned on the Lusitania).
