Elaborate Victorian mausolea and monuments at West Norwood Cemetery mingle with understated modern gravestones and city wildlife in a diverse, underrated gem.

KENSAL GREEN CEMETERY

Opened as the first of the Maginficent Seven, the ‘Belgravia of death’ at Kensal Green Cemetery remains one of London’s finest burial grounds containing famous names.

HAMPSTEAD CEMETERY

A lesser known London cemetery that is every bit as fascinating as any of the Magnificent Seven, Hampstead Cemetery contains plenty of elaborate and beautiful monuments.

The kiss of sun for pardon
The song of birds for mirth
We are nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
