Wander in Margravine Cemetery

Whilst undertaking the excellent Treasure Quest around the Hammersmith at the weekend, your author had an opportunity to spend some time in Margravine Cemetery, a Victorian cemetery opened in 1868 on what was then Fulham Fields, an area of semi-urban market gardens and orchards.

The cemetery continued to be used until 1951, when it was closed to new burials and was officially designated a 16½ acre 'Garden of Rest', and today it serves as both a public park and a memorial to those who were buried here over more than eighty years,
