MONUMENT CONSERVATION
Private Memorials
Highgate Cemetery
, Platt Table Tomb 2011

This handsome memorial of marble and Portland stone had subsided at a significant tilt and also suffered localised vegetative invasion enough to compromise its overall structural integrity, compounded by water ingress. All sections were damaged and some missing altogether. The structure was stabilised and levelled out, then reassembled on a series of new reinforced concrete rafts poured in situ; new stainless steel clamps and dowels provided additional support. Small drains were added in order to direct water away from the foundations; all internal and external joints were pointed with hydraulic lime mortar. The considerable shrapnel of broken fragments around the site were carefully collected, pieced together and relocated to their original positions.
