Bromley's London Road Cemetery would be entirely unremarkable, a brick and stone chapel surrounded by forgotten, lopsided monuments, were it not for one magnificent specimen of memorial sculpture: the depiction of Edward Fuller in his best suit, being guided up to heaven by a coyly-smiling angel.
This is the oldest cemetery in Bromley, opened in 1877. It's now full and closed to new burials.
Opened in 1995, this cemetery was just a few years old when these photographs were taken. New cemeteries are always rather odd and bleak.
