I have recently resurrected a project I was doing on Alvin Langdon Coburn and have found his grave in Rhos on Sea in North Wales were he lived and died in the 19660s.

His grave is rather a mess to say the least and I would like to get it restored or restore it myself.I know he has no family in the UK but maybe has in the United States.

I would appreciate any leads anyone could give me in the hope of contacting them.

  • Hi, Brian. The Universal Order holds Coburn's copyright. I will email contact details off-list. They might be good place to start. Can you upload a photo of the grave as it currently stands?
