Brompton Cemetery restoration supported by London Month of the Dead

Melanie May | 17 October 2016 | News

The London Month of the Dead is investigating the capital’s relationship with its deceased residents this month with a series of events helping to raise funds for the restoration of Brompton Cemetery.
Hosted by A Curious Invitation and Antique Beat, events include a tour of Hyde Park’s pet cemetery, a private view of the Museum of London’s bone archive, taxidermy workshops and a series of weekend death salons with talks on subjects ranging from public dissection and body snatching to reincarnation and funereal folklore. All the events are being hosted at the chapels in two of the capital’s most well known cemeteries: Brompton and Kensal Green.

The talks and workshops are being run throughout October in conjunction with a fundraising appeal for the restoration of Brompton Cemetery, the 39-acre Grade 1 listed West London burial ground managed by Royal Parks.
Twenty per cent of all ticket sales will be donated to the conservation of the site, while the Heritage Lottery Fund has pledged a match funding campaign, which will see all donations automatically doubled in value and, once a total of £500,000 is reached, a further £3.7m conservation fund will be unlocked.
