Thread: Burial for Susannah Beagley

    I saw that too, but it doesn’t say which parts survive in the Bishop’s Transcripts. And South Lambeth (where Susannah died) is a little bit away from Kennington too.

    Using the 1851 description of enumeration district & confirming via old maps, Cavendish Terrace would have been roughly where the Cavendish Arms is now, just above Viceroy Road. Its about a mile from St Mark's, Kennington.

    Carolyn, the London Necropolis Company opened a site at Brookwood, near Woking, and built a special railway line to transport coffins and mourners from London to the cemetery. At one time Brookwood was the largest cemetery in the world. It is privately owned and is still in operation - Dodi El Fayed was buried there immediately after his death, but later his remains were moved to the family estate. It's a huge place, on either side of a main road, with sections for different denominations and has a very large war-graves section. Brookwood station is still in use, but no longer for funeral trains, lol. I used to go and visit a friend who lived in one of the nearby villages and I met the local historian in the village pub and he told me all about the LNC, the reason for the railway line and the cemetery. One of the cemetery work force was also a pub regular, and as he knew I was interested in genealogy, he recommended a trip to look around! A very interesting place for those of us who are happy to read gravestones and to mingle amongst those who went before!

    Genealogists never die - they just swap places in the family tree

    how interesting, I worked and lived that way, but never realised, just mentioned it to husband and he knew about it!

    I did know that the cemetery near my Nans in Finchley on North Circular Road is huge and was for 'Londoners'. Was looking at the plans of it the other day as a cousin died immediately after birth is there. I had no idea how vast it is.

    How interesting. I found out while searching family in Australia that there was a similar railway between central Sydney and a massive graveyard. I had thought it was unique. Now I know different.
