Abney Park Cemetery

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

Isn't Abney Park one of the Magnificent Seven Victorian cemetaries? Along with (I can never remember all of them) Kensal Green, Highgate, West Brompton, Nunhead.... er, Norwood? And the other one. I believe they were built when London's church graveyards were quite clearly not going to be enough to house all the dead. I found a website some time ago which gave a load of info, but alas, I can't find it now. Abney Park is a great place for picking blackberries and elderberries btw.
