West Brompton Cemetery – London & Middlesex Division
Opened in 1840, this is one of the original 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries which circled inner London, designed to relieve the chronic shortage of burial spaces in churchyards. It is Grade 1 Listed on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens. There are over 60 species of trees and over 200 species of moths and butterflies have been recorded here. There are 35,000 monuments and famous names amongst the 200,000 burials include Emmeline Pankhurst, John Wisden (of the Cricketing Almanac), Samuel Cunard (cruise ships) and more recently, the actor, Brian Glover.
