The Magnificent Seven: #2, Tower Hamlets Cemetery



Next on my list of Magnificent Seven cemeteries was the youngest of them, Tower Hamlets (established 1841). Unlike most of the others, it's been closed to new burials for several decades. The large blocks of empty plots at the far end are a haven for wildlife, and it teems with birds and squirrels in daylight.

The prevailing fashion in burial statuary seemed to be for urns, often encircled by inscribed stone hearts, rather than for the angels that inhabit Brompton Cemetery.
