      The Times, 19 Oct 1844
      THE TOWER - (From a Correspondent) - The first disinterment from the Tower burial-ground took place on Saturday last, when the mortal remains of several relatives of Lieutenant-General Dickinson, Royal Artillery, were thence removed to the new churchyard, Lee, Kent. The coffins were conveyed in a hearse, and deposited in a vault previously prepared for their reception. Two relatives of the General, the Rev W Ludlow and Mr R Welbank, superintended the removal, and accompanied the remains. We understand this rude, perhaps cruel, disturbance, has arisen from the alleged necessity of appropriating that which was formerly a burial-ground as the site for a portion of the projected new barracks.
