Tuesday 14th May – Monthly Meeting

The necroplis railway

We welcome John Clake to tell the full story of what must have been one of the most unusual train services to operate on a British railway – the service operated for the London Necropolis Company from its private station just outside London Waterloo to Brookwood Cemetery near Woking. The book describes how the railway conveyed the deceased and their accompanying mourners to their final resting place, Brookwood Cemetery (the London Necropolis), which at one time was the largest cemetery in the world.
