Brookwood Cemetery

z-263.jpg

Brookwood Cemetery is a burial ground in Brookwood, Surrey, England. Also known as the London Necropolis, it was established by the London Necropolis Company in 1852 to house London’s dead, since the capital was finding it difficult to accommodate its increasing population, both of living and dead. Landscaped by architect William Tite, by 1854 it was the largest cemetery in the world (it is no longer) and over 240,000 people have been buried there. for more click here
