London Cemeteries : An Illustrated Guide and Gazetteer Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


London Cemeteries is a comprehensive guide to all cemeteries within Greater London.

Listed alphabetically and with a map to help locate them, each entry 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.

Alongside a refreshed design, this sixth edition has been extensively revised with updated biographies, additional details about buildings and visitor facilities, fresh research on flora and fauna and entries for 28 further cemeteries in the Greater London area.
