War memorial in Streatham Cemetery
War memorial in Streatham Cemetery
Under the Metropolitan Burial Act of 1852, which was in response to the second cholera epidemic of 1848-49, the Streatham Burial Board acquired the land in what was then countryside. With two lodges and two mirror image chapels built in the Gothic style by William Newton-Dunn, Streatham Cemetery opened for burials in 1894. Although Streatham Cemetery is owned by the Borough of Lambeth, it is actually in Tooting in the Borough of Wandsworth. The imposing war memorial is in the centre of the cemetery, just beyond the eastern chapel.
