I grew up round the corner from the haunting, beautiful and massive Brookwood Cemetery. Also known by the imposing name of "The London Necropolis", it is the biggest cemetery in the UK, one of the largest in the Europe, and at one point it was the biggest in the world. It was established in 1849 to bury the dead of London, where space was scarce, and a special train line was built to carry the dead to the cemetery, accessible from "The London Necropolis Railway Station". Its always been one of my favorite places to photograph, as you can see here.
While the civilian cemetery is a wonderful, delapadated mess, the military section is a model of well cared for order and precision. Added to the cemetery in 1917, it is the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the UK and contains 1,601 Commonwealth burials from World War I and 3,476 from World War II. There is also an American section containing almost 500 dead.
