London – Waltham Forest (Borough of) – Chingford Mount Cemetery (Grave of Charles James Kray)

Charles James Kray (1927-2000) was the older brother of Ronnie and Reggie Kray and he’s buried at Chingford Mount Cemetery next to his infamous brothers. The actress Barbara Windsor is known for her one-night stand with Reggie Kray, but she had a full-blown affair with Charles. He was sentenced to ten years in prison in 1968 and was released in 1975, saying that his name was a major problem for him after this time given the reputation that his brothers had. Kray returned to crime in the 1990s and he was sent back to prison, which is where he died.

The grave mentions his son Gary, who died in 1996 and was the only child of any of the three Krays. Gary is buried with Reggie’s wife Frances Shea, but more about that in another post….
