News, comment & ill-informed opinion for the Twickerati of Twickenham

Oak Lane Cemetery, Twickenham

Back to Pix index page.

Here’s a few photos of the Oak Lane Cemetery in Twickenham taken on an overcast Autumn afternoon. Lovely stuff. It’s a small but atmospheric place and is home to a variety of wildlife as well as some interesting graves. The place opened in the 1830s on land granted by Queen Victoria and closed to new burials in 1955. Or did it??

A single WWI grave. More details.

Child deaths were common in Victorian England. And it’s also interesting, and unusual, that the parents did not share the same surname. Unmarried perhaps?
