Site: Budd family mausoleum (1 memorial)

SW2, Brixton Road

Built the year after St Matthew's church, immediately to the south, was consecrated. The land between the church and the mausoleum was a graveyard but was converted to public space by 1956. We do not normally cover grave monuments but this one is so significant in the street-scape that we could not exclude it.

Richard Budd had been born in Brixton which probably explains why his son decided to place the family mausoleum here. This Budd family had lived at 10 Chatham Place, Blackfriars but later lived at 35 Russell Square.

Twickenham Park has provided much of our information on the Budds. Note that this monument is NOT for Dr Richard Budd and his son, the Rev.Henry Budd, Chaplain to Bridewell Hospital. They are not, as far as we know, related to our Budds.
