Brookwood Cemetery, Brookwood - Woking

The greatest commercial garden cemetery in England founded in 1852 for London's dead, uniquely served by its own railway. Tombs and monuments for many denominations, faiths, nationalities and groups within a high quality picturesque landscape design of immense scale. C20 military and woodland sections only heighten the site's historical, cultural, social and nature significance. Acquired by the Local Authority to resource management and investigate new funeral facilities, a Conservation Framework has been funded by Historic England to scope the huge visioning and management task required.
