Kensal Green Cemetery Part 1

West London

Kensal Green is one of the so-called Magnificent Seven London cemeteries, and magnificent it certainly is.

Inspired by the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, All Souls Cemetery, Kensal Green was founded by the barrister George Frederick Carden.

The Cemetery opened in 1833 and comprises 72 acres of grounds, including two conservation areas, adjoining a canal. The cemetery is home to at least 33 species of bird and other wildlife.

The Cemetery has memorials ranging from large mausolea housing the rich and famous to many distinctive smaller graves and includes special areas dedicated to the very young.
