Necropolis of the North West
Meet the Egyptian Londoners who went “to Paradise, by way of Kensal Green”.
A twenty foot high obelisk commemorating the founder of a nineteenth century rock band, the lady with the lamp who marks the grave of the creator of a giant pyramidal pudding, and the monument of the man who could ride nine horses at the same time.
Together with a pyramid, an Egyptian tomb built on the proceeds of looted Indian jewels, a film location from the story of a murderous mummy princess, unexpected Egyptian episodes in the lives of English novelists, and the graves of royalty.
All this and more in that Victorian Valhalla, the Necropolis of the North West, better known as the General Cemetery of All Souls, Kensal Green.
