Brookwood Cemetery, Brookwood - Woking

A commercial garden cemetery of immense scale founded in 1852 for London's dead, uniquely served by its own railway. Still active with tombs and monuments for many denominations, faiths, nationalities and groups within a picturesque landscape design. C20 military and woodland sections only heighten the site's significance. Acquired by the Local Authority after longstanding lack of overall management. A Conservation Framework was funded by Historic England in 2014 to scope the huge visioning and management task required. Master plan, experience and business plans completed in 2020.
