London NecropolisLondon's Necropolis: A Guide to Brookwood Cemetery In the mid-nineteenth century the volume of London's dead was causing considerable public concern. So in 1850 the idea of a great metropolitan cemetery, situated in the suburbs and large enough to contain all of London's dead for an indefinite period, was promoted. The outcome was Brookwood Cemetery, the largest burial ground in the world when it was opened in 1854 by the London Necropolis & Mausoleum Company. The cemetery, which now contains almost 240,000 burials, is still privately owned and adminstered, and a draft report by the Home Office suggests that it has the potential to become a World Heritage Site. London's Necropolis is a guide to the art and architecture of Brookwood, and also includes brief biographies of over 800 individuals of interest who have been buried here, reflecting all levels of society. Each chapter is supported by maps, and there are about 100 black and white photographs to illustrate some of the most interesting memorials and cemetery buildings.
