Brookwood Cemetery was created in the 1850s as a solution to the overcrowded cemeteries of London. It is situated in a 220-acre park and is a Grade I listed site in the Register of Historic Parks
and Gardens. The cemetery is currently the largest in Western Europe.

The visit will begin with a short historical talk, after which a volunteer from the Brookwood Cemetery Society will lead us on a tour lasting approximately 2 hours. The cemetery includes a remarkably rich range of burials reflecting all levels of society. A number of prominent memorials will be visited and notable graves include those of John Singer Sargent, Gottlieb Wilhelm Leitner and Dr Robert Knox.

Please note: this visit is not suitable for those with impaired mobility as a result of the uneven ground and duration of the tour.

Meet at the Glades of Remembrance car park at 1.45pm
