Tower Hamlets cemetery was opened in 1841, the last of London’s Magnificent Seven cemeteries established to relieve the burden on the City’s burial grounds. It was the graveyard of the East End and in Victorian times it specialised in “common” graves, where bodies were buried in communal plots for 23 shillings (as opposed to 63 shillings for a private plot). Its noted residents include early members of the Labour movement.
In this guided tour, participants will explore the rich history of the East End via the headstones of Tower Hamlets cemetery.
