The latest damage was along Camdale Road in Plumstead (Woolwich cemetery is located in Plumstead). Damage was previously made to a surrounding wall in April 2020:

Bricks were neatly laid out but the attempt was discovered before collection:

    Thieves are well aware that you have more chance of seeing Tony Blair as seeing a single policemen…any time day or night

    How sick and low can people stoop too to nick from a Cemetery. I hope they are caught before even more damage is done.
