Nunhead Cemetery (All Saints) SE15 - Southwark

An important public cemetery designed by J Bunstone Bunning and consecrated in 1840. The layout of the cemetery skilfully exploits the undulating topography to create picturesque effects and vistas. Vegetation and self-sown saplings are disrupting historic monuments and obscuring the legibility of the landscape. The Local Authority is developing plans to restore the East Lodge, which is a longstanding building at risk, and has commissioned a comprehensive tree survey and memorial risk assessment to inform an updated Conservation Management Plan for the whole of the designed landscape.
