Thieves again target Woolwich Cemetery

Thieves have again partly dismantled a wall surrounding Woolwich cemetery in an attempt to steal parts of the wall.

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:

Anyone with information can contact police at 101.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

    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.
