Site: HMS Albion disaster (1 memorial)

E13, Grange Road, East London Cemetery

We were asked to stop taking photos here because it was an 'invasion of privacy'. This has never before happened to us in cemeteries and seems very strange as we weren't photographing other visitors, only this mass grave and memorial for a historic event.
