Bexleyheath Cemetery

This beautiful little cemetery is tucked behind the shops of Bexleyheath High Street. Incredibly for such an accessible spot, there is very little evidence of vandalism, and some beautiful memorials survive intact. Chief amongst these must be the neat statue of a 1930s schoolboy, waiting primly beside his angelic guide. The tiny chapel apparently remains in use, situated behind a newly built lodge, and beside well-maintained flower beds. Towards the back of the cemetery, a strip of land is filled with cremation urns and floral tributes: evidence that this lovely site is still very much part of its community.
