On Saturday 29 July 2006 a large crowd converged on Mill Hill Cemetery in North London where a ceremony was held to commemorate the unveiling of the headstone on Maclaren-Ross's previously unmarked grave. The crowd included his son Alex, along with the leading biographers, Peter Parker and Selina Hastings.
This event represented the culmination of a year-long fund-raising campaign led by the writer, Virginia Ironside, assisted by the Sohemian Society, Black Spring Press and Dewi Lewis Publishing. Coincidentally, the inscription of the headstone was carved by Tom Waugh, grandson of Evelyn Waugh who once described Maclaren-Ross's writing as being 'deliciously funny'.
Just before the headstone was unveiled by Maclaren-Ross's son, Alex, there were brief speeches by Virginia Ironside and Paul Willetts. There was also a reading by David Collard from the Sohemian Society. He read the following poem, composed to mark the occasion which was subsequently covered by The Observer and two local North London newspapers.
