HAMPSTEAD CEMETERY 23 DECEMBER AROUND 3.30 PM


The monument highlighted on the right is a memorial to Arthur Frankau, an importer of cigars, and his wife Julia, who wrote novels under the name Frank Danby. The first was 'Dr. Phillips: A Maida Vale Idyll', a portrait of London Jewish life, including a discussion of euthanasia. As a young woman she was home-tutored by Karl Marx's daughter Laura Lafargue. She is the great-grandmother of Sam Bain, who co-wrote Peep Show. More here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Frankau and here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Frankau
