Will Hay's Grave Restored

In the year of the 70th anniversary of his death, the memorial to English comedian Will Hay has been restored and refurbished. The grave stands in Streatham Park Cemetery, Rowan Road, Streatham, London. In recent years the imposing memorial had fallen into some disrepair and the Will Hay Appreciation Society with the blessing of the Hay family engaged Grave Care International to refurbish and restore the site.

Will Hay (1888-1949) was the top box office star in Britain in the 1930s and is widely considered to be one of the most prolific and influential British comedians of all time. He is, perhaps, best remembered as a dubious schoolmaster in the classic comedy films Boys Will Be Boys (1935) and the bungling railway stationmaster in Oh Mr Porter! (1937). Will was a resident of Streatham and commanded much respect as an astronomer.

Grave Care International Ltd are based in Epsom and clean and restore memorials across the whole of the UK. Tony Jones, Managing Director, said: “It was a real privilege to work on Will’s grave. I watched him on TV as a kid and on DVDs now. His humour hasn’t aged and I never dreamed one day I’d be looking after his resting place.”
