The grave of Alfred Tennyson Dickens has been kept green.  A stone has been brought from Rochester Cathedral, England, which is intimately associated with Charles Dickens, and placed in the altar of the Church of the Inter-cession, which stands directly across Broadway.  The stone was consecrated with fitting ceremony a few days ago.  After the ceremony the grave of Alfred Tennyson Dickens was decorated with wreaths sent by chapters of the Dickens Fellowship from all parts of the country.

Upper Broadway traffic halted last evening just after dusk while about 500 men, women and children caryring lanterns marched over 155th Street, after attending services at the Chapel of the Intercession, to enter Trinity Cemetery, where the throng crowded down the sloping paths of the graveyard to pay homage to the graves of Clement C. Moore, author of " Twas the Night Before Christmas," and Alfred Tennyson Dickens, son of Charles Dickens.

It was not until 1935 that a permanent gravestone of Barre, Vermont granite was placed there.  The funds for this stone were contributed by the children of the Church School of the Chapel of the Intercession...the lettering is said to be the same as that on Charles Dickens' grave in Westminster Abbey.
