During World War II cremations urns interred at the Anglican Chapel in Kensal Green Cemetery were hurriedly moved into the catacombs for safekeeping.  Following the war many lay forgotten underground.

Over the next six decades each urn underwent a kind of metamorphosis driven by time, chemistry and chance. Although each started out essentially the same, the transformations have been radically different.  In part, this is due to the varying chemical compositions of those within.  Despite their reduction to ash something of the individual asserts itself on the surface.
