One of London's 'Magnificent Seven' Victorian cemeteries


THCP has an extraordinary history, created as one of seven Victorian London cemeteries for a growing metropolis. It contains the remains of many significant local residents and offers a fascinating insight into the history of the borough over the last century. The cemetery was closed to burials in 1966 and the site became a designated Park by an Act of Parliament.


The Cemetery Park remains a site of interest for local historians and for people searching for relatives buried here. The East London History Society  works with the Friends to record graves in the cemetery.
