I am currently in the process of trying to arrange for a headstone to be erected over the currently unmarked grave of Rorke's Drift Defender Gunner Howard RA in Brockley Cemetery, Lewisham.
After several frustrating months trying to chase quotes from various stonemason firms, I have approached an Essex-based company who are willing to provide & erect an inscribed black granite headstone for £720. I have opened a dedicated Gunner Howard Memorial Fund account and currently have £120 in donations plus a pledge of £150 from the Royal Artillery Charitable Funds. This leaves around £450 to be found, so if anybody is willing to contribute (no matter how small the amount) I would be very pleased to hear from you.
Thanks to the 'Friends of Brockley & Ladywell Cemeteries' group who are helping me with this project, Lewisham Council have kindly agreed to waive the usual fee of around £250.
