Dear all,

On Thursday, 16 June 2022, after much planning, a gravestone was laid on
George Spencer-Brown's grave. Leon and I attended the grave that beautiful
sunny morning and took a few photos which we attach.

The gravestone, of polished black granite with gilt lettering, giving his
name, dates and the initials of the primary arithmetic, is magnificent. We
hope the photos reflect this.

Our deep gratitude goes out to each and every one of you who contributed to
the fund, and to Akiem Helmling for finessing the final design.

The cost of the gravestone has been covered in full, along with five years'
damage insurance, and we have a small surplus which we may put toward future

GSB lies, as he wished, in unconsecrated ground in Brookwood cemetery, close
to the grave of Charles Bradlaugh, the Victorian freethinker. The cemetery
is vast, so for those who may wish to visit, the grave is located in: Holly
Avenue, Plot 108, Brookwood cemetery, Woking, Surrey.

I will shortly discuss obtaining Notable Grave status with Brookwood

With warm regards to you all - and many thanks again for all your help!
