RE: Kate Greenaway
Glad to be of assistance!

Unfortunately, I am still feeling a bit rough. It is nothing life-threatening, but it is taking far too long to clear.

Hope you are well,

Iain.

RE: Kate Greenaway
Dear Keith,

I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply. This is due to a combination of my not being able to find the guide book, and the weather (until last week) being so rough, and my not feeling very well.

The guide book has now emerged; the weather is much better; and I am slightly better, if not 100%; so, this afternoon, I went across to Hampstead. I hope that what follows is clear:

Walk as far as the chapel, then turn left, then turn right when, on the left, you see the elaborate tomb of Banister Fletcher. Continue West for about 70 or 80 yards; and, on your left, you should see the small, grey tomb of Joseph Lister. After Lister, the graves are as follows:

Isitt; Quain; Strickland; Rattray; Dale; Norris.

Just behind Norris is the grave of Henry and Elizabeth Pryce. Walk South along this path, keeping Pryce on your right. After nine graves, most, if not all, of which are unmarked, you should see a tree on your left. Kate Greenaway's grave is next to the tree, facing away from you.

That is probably the safest way to get there, as there is a path of sorts, but has the disadvantage that you can't see Kate, on account of her facing in the wrong direction. Alternatively;

If you stand at Quain's grave and look South, you should see the grave of Sir Samuel Wilks. Hack your way through the brambles as far as Wilks, and you should see Kate Greenaway's inscription, a few graves ahead of you. This is more direct, and has the advantage that her name is visible as you approach it, but the ground is most uneven and covered with brambles, and I got quite badly scratched.

Over the next few days, I hope to add most of these names to the website, so it might be an idea to wait until you can see the photographs, then you may have an idea of what to look for.

If that doesn't make any sense, let me know and I'll try to make it clearer.

All the best,

Iain.

RE: Kate Greenaway
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, Keith.

Somewhere around here, I have a book about Hampstead Cemetery. Unfortunately, the book wasn't in the first place I looked for it.

When it does emerge, I'll write again to tell you exactly where Kate's grave is. I don't suppose you'll be going there until the weather brightens up a bit (although it is rather good to-day) but I'll do this as soon as I can. I am going to be at home all of next week so I might give the house a much-needed clean then.

I suppose you know that there is a plaque to her at 147 Upper Street in Islington, so you can go and look at that while you are waiting!

Back soon,

Iain.
