Hampstead Cemetery
Fortune Green Road, London, NW6

Hampstead Cemetery covers 37 acres and was opened in 1876. It is recorded that it cost the Board £2,500 to lay out and plant the grounds, and £4,843 to build the chapels. The chapels were designed by Charles Bell in 1876 in Kentish Rag and Bath Stone. The southern chapel was for those to be buried in consecrated ground south of the main avenue; the other was for burials in the unconsecrated ground to the north. Among those buried there are Marie Lloyd, Joseph Lister and Kate Greenaway.
