IHBC South-East Branch invite you to a guided tour and site visit of Brookwood Cemetery. Brookwood Cemetery was conceived by the London Necropolis Company in 1849 to house London’s deceased, at a time when the capital was finding it difficult to accommodate its increasing population, of living and dead. The 220 acre park provides a picturesque, wooded and tranquil setting for visitors 365 days of the year and is recognised at Grade I on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. The grounds are divided into many smaller plots by a multitude of roads and avenues that boast magnificent trees and offer a wealth of flora and fauna as well as the largest burial ground in Western Europe for all faiths.
