John Clarke has published numerous books and articles on Brookwood Cemetery, and he will be bringing his expertise to the Dissenters’ Chapel to deliver a talk entitled ‘From here to Eternity: The Brookwood Cemetery Railway and Brookwood Cemetery’. His talk aims to give an illustrated journey on the Necropolis Train along with an explanation of the railway funeral service operated by the London Necropolis Company between 1854-1941. This lecture also includes a brief tour of the various sections at Brookwood, at one time the largest cemetery in the world, and reference to a few of the famous names buried there.
At the Dissenters Chapel, Kensal Green Cemetery, Harrow Road, Kensal Green, London, W10 5AA.
This organisation is interested in the preservation, conservation and
restoration of Kensal Green Cemetery (London, England), in particular its
