WHILE it is true that Percy Bysshe Shelley's ashes are in the same Roman cemetery as Keats ("In corners of foreign fields...", 14 June), his heart, saved from the funeral pyre after his drowning at Viareggio, is buried in St Peter's churchyard, Bournemouth.

It shares a tomb with Mary Shelley and her parents, William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, whose remains were brought from St Pancras churchyard in 1857.
