St John's Burial Ground, Horseferry Road, Westminster, London SW1
St John's Burial Ground, Horseferry Road, Westminster, London SW1
The burial ground was initially laid out in 1731 but soon became overcrowded despite a few feet of earth being added to the top on several occasions. It was eventually closed in 1853. It was reopened as a public park in 1885 having been cleared of its graves. This shows one of the few tombs that survive although many tombstones have been placed around the sides of the park and some laid as paving slabs.
