Herbert Lott's last home and where his remains rest. Despite the explicit instructions written into his will, his burial was tragically simple and his grave totally unmarked.
These pictures were taken on Wednesday 23rd February 2005 during my visit to Wallingford where I was hosted by the present incumbent of the house in which Herbert Lott lived and died, people in the town who remembered him, and the South Oxon County Council who are responsible for the cemetery in which he is buried.
