Grey marble tablet with inscription, painted in with black

The Crypt, St. Paul's Cathedral

While repairs were being carried out to the crypt, Cruikshank was temporarily buried in Kensal Green Cemetery, where there is still an inscribed grave-marker for him. There is also a ledger-stone for him at St Paul's, and a bust of him by Acton-Adams completed in 1881, and displayed on a pedestal.
