According to the 1871 census, William Patchett was a barrister living with his wife at 14 Alfred Place West, Brompton. Clara's occupation was given as landowner. William was born in Lancashire and Clara in Turnham Green. By 1901 they were living at 48 Bury Lodge, Bury Lane, Epping.
The large black tomb is a memorial to a man who died in Australia.
'George Russell Gretton
Son of William Walter and Mary [?] Gretton

Buried at Adelaide'
The many squirrels in the cemetery are the tamest I've ever seen, and
are obviously well fed.
The grave with the cross is that of Adela Hutt, 'Widow of General Sir George Hutt, K.C.B.'
She was born in 1835 and died in 1905. In the 1881 census General Hutt is listed as retired from the army, and was working as Secretary of the Royal Chelsea Hospital, where they lived with their son Francis. He was born on the Isle of White in about 1809.
Adela Hutt was born at Kirkee in India.
Sadly much of the lead is missing from this gravestone, and the one next
to it is also damaged.
The first name is Elizabeth.
The grave next to the one with the squirrel looks as if it's missing a
cross or sculpture.
It is the grave of Walker of the Madras Cavalry.
