About Brompton Cemetery
Brompton Cemetery opened in 1840 and covers 39.5 acres. It is listed Grade I in the Heritage England's Register of Parks and Gardens and all the cemetery buildings and one monument are listed Grade II*. Benjamin Baud, the cemetery’s architect, created an immense open-air cathedral with a central ‘nave’ running to a ‘high altar’ symbolised by the domed Anglican Chapel. The most prominent features are the Colonnades flanking Central Avenue and the Great Circle, a diminutive version of the piazza at St Peter’s in Rome. Uniquely in 1852 Brompton cemetery was nationalised and for the last 60 years has been in the care of the Royal Parks. The tour will include the graves of Emmeline Pankhurst, Sir William Crookes, John Snow, Charles Stent and Sir Thomas Spencer Wells.
