About This Book

London Cemeteries is a comprehensive guide to all 126 cemeteries within Greater London. Listed alphabetically and with a map to help locate them, for each cemetery it includes the address, the date of foundation, the owner, the size, a note on its history, development and current state, and the names, dates and major achievements of any noteworthy people buried there. There are also chapters on the origins of London’s cemeteries and cemetery history, planning, architecture and epitaphs. Illustrated throughout with both modern photographs and a wide range of rarely seen archive images, it is an essential source of information for anyone interested in London’s social and architectural history, as well as biographical and genealogical researchers.
