When I lived in London in the '90s I enjoyed visiting Highgate and Brompton Cemeteries occasionally. These are two of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries, which were built in the 1830s in response to a massive influx of population to London in the early 19th century...More

I went for personal reasons (my grandfather is buried here) and i was visiting from California. However, if you are in the area there are many famous people buried here and the old headstones are beautiful and full of so much history.

I visited West Norwood Cemetery during the week. Given London is going through a building/DIY boom, I could hear work going on in the distance so the cemetery was not a haven of peace on the day I visited, but for London the cemetery came...More

Lovely place, very peaceful. If you are going to the crematorium, it's either a nice stroll or a drudge in the heat. Car parking is available (well, on the road) if you wish.

Attending a family cremation sadly, but was relieved to find it was so close to West Norwood station. Fair walk to the crematorium, up a hill. Secuirty office as you enter happily gave directions when i told him the name of the family funeral.

A very interesting and beautiful place, especially on a fine day. There are usually people there to help you and they are very knowledgable about the cemetery. There are quite a few famous people buried there. Some amazing monuments and tombs!

West Norwood Cemetery needs to be celebrated, but I feel it is underrated. With known friends and famous people buried there, more publicity should be showered on this lovely cemetery. Wonderful gates lead you to an area of mystery that you can not fail to...More
