English Kensal Green Cemetery

Kensal Green Cemetery is a rural cemetery in the Kensal Green area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, England. Inspired by Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, it was founded by the barrister George Frederick Carden. The cemetery opened in 1833 and comprises 72 acres of grounds, including two conservation areas, adjoining a canal. The cemetery is home to at least 33 species of bird and other wildlife. This distinctive cemetery has memorials ranging from large mausoleums housing the rich and famous to many distinctive smaller graves and includes special areas dedicated to the very young. It has three chapels, and serves all faiths. It is one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries in London.

The cemetery was immortalised in the lines of G. K. Chesterton's poem "The Rolling English Road" from his book The Flying Inn: "For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen; Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green."Despite its Grecian-style buildings the cemetery is primarily Gothic in character, due to the high number of private Gothic monuments. Due to this atmosphere, the cemetery was the chosen location of several scenes in movies, notably in Theatre of Blood.

The cemetery is listed Grade I on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. It remains in use.

German Kensal Green Cemetery

Kensal Green Cemetery (dt. Friedhof Kensal Green) ist ein Friedhof im Londoner Stadtteil Kensal Green und der erste und älteste kommerzielle Friedhof in London. Der Friedhof wurde infolge eines Acts of Parliament zur Beseitigung der Platznot bei Begräbnissen in London 1833 eröffnet. Das starke Wachstum der Stadt und die hohe Sterblichkeit hatten zuvor zu unhaltbaren hygienischen Zuständen in der Umgebung der vielen kleinen und überfüllten Begräbnisstätten geführt. Schon zwei Jahre zuvor hatte die General Cemetery Company Land erworben, um einen Friedhof zu errichten. Die Anlage wurde nach einem Entwurf von John Griffith im Greek-Revival-Stil errichtet.

Seit dem 13. Juni 1989 kümmert sich eine ehrenamtliche Organisation – The Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery – um den Erhalt der historischen Anlage.
