Kensal Green (All Souls) Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

London's first metropolitan cemetery, designed by John William Griffith in 1833. The cemetery contains a large number of listed monuments and key buildings also at risk. The Management Plan from 2004 needs revision. With the support of Historic England, the General Cemetery Company are commissioning reports to ensure that appropriate strategies for tree and vegetation management can be set out and implemented. Works to sections of the boundary wall have allowed improved maintenance of areas previously off-limits, with planned works to further areas, including removal of inappropriate planting.
