BLADON - As a boy, Winston Churchill often visited his parents' graves in the small parish cemetery of Bladon in Oxfordshire. In accordance with his will, Britain's World War II leader was buried beside them and other family members when he died in 1965. But since then, surviving family members have grown unhappy with disorderliness of the site. Now the grave has been restored and surrounding area renovated with 600,000 from Britain's National Lottery. The 16 family gravestones packed together on a sometimes muddy slope have been reset in a series of steps: Churchill's headstone has been replaced by an understated piece in Portland stone carved with his name and that of his wife Clementine and stone steps have replaced an ugly concrete path. New benches will allow some of the 20,000 people a year who visit the grave to sit and contemplate.
