THE ARCHITECTURE
OF DEATH

Kensal Green cemetery

Opened in 1833, Kensal Green Cemetery is the oldest of London’s ‘Magnificent Seven’ cemeteries. Though much of the site is modern — including an 80 foot long memorial garden to one tragic boy, Medi Oliver Mehra — its heart is an impressive and daunting array of Gothic mausolea, tombs and monuments which have been described as the ‘Belgravia of death.’

Notable interments in Kensal Green Cemetery include engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Princess Sophia (daughter of George III) and singer Pete Burns.
