Thomas Crapper Re-Dedication Ceremony

At long last, there is to be a re-dedication ceremony for Mr. Crapper's newly-restored grave at Beckenham Cemetery, Kent organized by the Thomas Crapper and Co. Ltd. of England. This event will take place in the afternoon of Saturday the 4th May; the Reverend Canon Derek Carpenter, Rector of Beckenham, has kindly agreed to preside.

They hope to have a gathering of Crappers (would the collective noun be a 'flush'?) both those who are related and those who share, or used to share, the surname. In addition, anyone who has an interest in the man or his trade will be welcome.

At this stage exact plans have not been drawn but we will keep you posted. As a novelty they are planning to commission a cake in the shape of one of Mr. Crapper's famous cisterns! However they will not travel too far into the burlesque - the aim of the day will be a respectful ceremony followed by a pleasant afternoon or evening. Conversation, some food and drink, perhaps even an illustrated presentation on the history of the man and his firm.
