Designed by William Haywood, the accomplished City Surveyor, the Cemetery was opened in 1856.
At 200 acres The City of London Cemetery is one of the largest Victorian Cemeteries in the
country and contains at present eight buildings listed Grade II, and the grounds themselves are Grade II* registered as a
Park and Garden of Historic Special Interest in recognition of their unique quality and size.
With everything from Peak Capped Gatemen, Florist, Cafe and Koi Pond The City of London Cemetery
is kept to an extremely high standard, litter and vandalism just do not exist. In fact it's difficult to Imagine how
this vast cemetery could be 150 years old.
Access by public transport is easiest via Manor Park Railway Station, on the Liverpool Street
Line, which is a 5-10 minutes walk.
