West Drayton Cemetery

West Drayton Cemetery looks at first glance like another rather dull suburban ground with rows of older kerbed plots and newer upright slabs. But go a little further in, because this cemetery has perhaps the most spectacular collection of modern monuments anywhere in the capital. The McCarthy and Doyle family memorials are worthy of anything the Victorians created in Kensal Green, and stones to children, with lettering picked out in pink or pale blue, are deeply moving.
