West Norwood cemetery

South London’s West Norwood Cemetery is the second oldest of the Magnificent Seven and brims with surprises. Modern graves and an operational crematorium are offset by grand Victorian mausolea and a stately though eerie Greek Necropolis, giving the location a wonderful dual character trapped between the past and present. 

Notable burials at West Norwood include sugar trader and gallery founder Henry Tate, automatic weapon inventor Hiram Maxim and food writer Isabella Beeton.
