Frank Kitz memorial stone fund

Nick Heath writes:

“I have been in contact with a member of Frank Kitz's family. Frank Kitz, you may remember, was one of the leading lights in the Socialist League, and a working class anarchist who devoted his life to social emancipation.* He died in extreme poverty and is buried in a common grave in Morden cemetery in London.

I and members of the Kitz family would like to honour the life of FK by providing a memorial stone at the cemetery. The inauguration of the stone would be marked by a ceremony.”

Those who would like to contribute to a fund to pay for the stone can make cheques or postal orders out to N. Heath and send

  1. I know that Ambrose Barker, an anarchist associate of Kitz in the Socialist League was involved in the Lammas events but have seen nothing about Kitz's involvement. can you provide any evidence for this?
