The cemeteries of Highgate, Kensal Green, Nunhead,
Brompton, West Norwood, Abney Park and Tower Hamlets form London's Magnificent Seven.
Why are London's Magnificent
Seven so significant? click here
To the uninitiated a Cemetery conjures
up images of almost identical headstones set out in symmetrical rows, for the modern day Cemetery this wouldn't be too far
from the truth.
But step back through time to the Victorian
age and you'll find vast gardens of the dead. Mausoleums, tombs and catacombs aplenty, still shelter thousands of ornate coffins
with their Victorian inhabitance over a century into their eternal slumber.
Each one of the Magnificent Seven provides
a haven of peace and tranquillity away from the madness of our modern society, a place rich in architecture, history
Every Mausoleum and monument tells the
story of it's illustrious owner, statements of wealth and defiance, ingenuity and wisdom. A society of times past as dignified
in death as they were in life.
