Lavender Hill Cemetery

Lavender Hill Cemetery is beautiful: perhaps one of the nicest suburban Victorian cemeteries I've visited. The site certainly helps, rolling down a hill and up the other side, with two chapels looking over a woodland view. The great and the good of Victorian Enfield congregate around the top of the hill. Further afield things are not quite so nice: curb surround graves looking like mousetraps from the twentieth century blanket the opposite hillside, and newer marble slabs have been tucked in neat rows into any remaining spaces. Still, Enfield must be congratulated on the excellent condition of this lovely little cemetery.
