Sir William Quiller Orchardson
This article dates back to December 2005 and highlights one of the many important discoveries at Margate cemetery by the Cemetery trust volunteers over the years. It is just incredible that someone of national and international importance in the art world could remain forgotten and buried under a mass of brambles and long grass without any acknowledgement for so long.
Sir Wiliam Quiller Orchardson was a resident of Westgate for some 20 years and looking on google, it appears he had a distinguished career in the art world. This article by Mick Twyman looking into his Westgate connections is for downloading.
