Where

Kensal Green was opened in 1833 as the first commercial graveyard.

Set up at the top of Ladbroke Grove, the vast, beautiful cemetery is well worth a trip just to admire its splendid Victorian monuments.

There was a choice of burial place – outside in the graveyard or in the great catacomb beneath the chapel. Coffins were lowered in the sub-terranean vaults by means of a mechanical catafalque, which has recently been restored to working order.

However, the catacomb was the burial place of only the very rich.

Kensal Green Cemetery is the tranquil resting place of many famous Londoners including Isambard Kingdom Brunel, William Makepeace Thackeray and Anthony Trollope.
