Brompton Cemetery has seen its popularity and visitor numbers soar in recent years – now over 700,000 people visit every year.

Brompton Cemetery is one of Britain’s oldest, opened in 1840, and has over 205,000 people buried there. It is still a working cemetery to this day.

Notable graves include those of Emmeline Pankhurst (suffragette), William Claude Kirby (first chairman of Chelsea F.C.) and Henry Cole (founded the Victoria & Albert Museum), any others.

Fun Fact: It is said that Beatrix Potter was inspired by some of the names on the tombstones here for her stories – there is even a Peter Rabbett buried here.
