A visit to the Kensal Green Chartists

I paid a visit to Kensal Green Cemetery yesterday in search of Chartists. Feargus O’Connor and Henry Hetherington were both buried there, and G.W.M.Reynolds is in the catacombs. There are other Chartist connections there too, and I was delighted to be able to find everything I wanted - with one exception.

I’ve written about the visit on here in Meet the Kensal Green Chartists, and added a map for anyone interested in making a similar pilgrimage.

Memorial to Henry Hetherington.
