Rosary Cemetery, Norwich

The entrance to the Rosary Cemetery lies on Rosary Road in Norwich, Norfolk. It was the first ever non-denominational cemetery in the UK.

It was established in 1821 on land formerly in use as a market garden, and presents a broad green open space between the housing areas to the south and the playing fields of the Telegraph Lane schools to the north. The 13 acres of the cemetery came under the control of the Norwich Corporation in 1954 and it is estimated that about 18,500 people have been buried there since 1821.
