It is coming up to the anniversary of the passing of my dad and and I thought I would pay a visit to the Cemetery at Kensal Green where the service for both my mum and dad was held. I do this every so often when I am in that neck of the woods as it not too far from NW8 and SW7 - my frequent haunts.
I decided to pay a quick visit to the adjacent Catholic Cemetery next door, mainly to find the resting place of the great Mary Seacole. I did find the resting place of the great lady but I also stumbled upon that of the entertainer Daniel Carroll, better known as Danny La Rue. Almost immediately the song 'On Mother Kelly's Doorstep' started to play in my head and as I type this entry a day later, it is still playing happily away.
