William Frend (1839-1917) & Evelyn De Morgan (1855-1919)

The De Morgan memorial after restorationWilliam Frend De Morgan was an accomplished artist, inventor, and author. His wife Evelyn De Morgan (ne Pickering), was a noted Pre-Raphaelite artist. They are buried together in plot 24. The distinctive headstone, with its two figures, was designed by Evelyn after her husband's death in 1917. It was carved by Sir George Frampton. In recent years, the headstone was beginning to lean over the grave space. The Brookwood Cemetery Society contacted the De Morgan Foundation, and it agreed to undertake the necessary remedial work and set the headstone upright. This was done and the work was completed during the summer of 1993. The photograph shows the memorial shortly after the work was completed.
