The Monday Photoblog… Abney Park Cemetery

DC Editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…



Monday is ALMOST mute here on The Daily Constitutional. I always launch the week with a few London photos, grouped on a theme or neighbourhood.



This week: Halloween's a-comin'…


Abney Park Cemetery, Stoke Newington was founded in the 1840's…





It replaced Bunhill Fields as the principal burial ground for dissenters and non-conformists.




It is home to 196,843 "Permanent Londoners".



The cemetery is named for Sir Thomas Abney, Lord Mayor of London 1700-01.



It covers 31 acres of Stoke Newington.




Among the famous burials are feminist writer Mary Hays (1843) and William and Catherine Booth, founders of the Salvation Army.
