Benjamin Colls Memorial
The very striking grade II-listed bronze relief plaque commemorating the Victorian building magnate at West Norwood cemetery. Click HERE for further images of the grave. The plaque was damaged in 2011 when thieves tried to pry it off so they could sell it for scrap. I remember being struck by how lifelike the image was.
