Wander in Camberwell New Cemetery

Purchased in three lots in 1901, as an extension to the original Camberwell Cemetery, Camberwell New Cemetery is a short distance from the original along Brenchley Gardens. 


Still an active cemetery, and an area particularly associated with recent bereavements as a result of being home to the Honor Oak Crematorium, Camberwell New Cemetery is a poignant place. It has been the final resting place of some interesting characters, including Kray contemporary George Cornell, London crime lord Charlie Richardson and weight-lifting champion William Pullum.
