David Jones was both a painter and one of the first generation British modernist poets. He was born in 1895 in Arabin Road, Brockley, and lived in Vesta Road and Howson Road. His drawings and delicate paintings are in Tate Britain and Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge. In Brockley Cemetery, to the west of the Chapel, is his circular grave stone, at his parents’ grave, a cross, carved by Eric Gill.
