The Corney Road Cemetry at St Nicholas Church by the River Thames is the resting place of the artist William Hogarth. His grave stone reads:
"Farewell great Painter of Mankind, Who reach'd the noblest point of Art Whose pictur'd Morals charm the Mind , And through the Eye correct the Heart. If Genius fire thee, Reader, stay, If Nature touch thee, drop a Tear: If neither move thee, turn away, For Hogarth's honour'd dust lies here".
