The Cemetery has around 200,000 burial sites but we thought that it would be a bit beyond our resources to visit them all! Accordingly, we concentrated on just 16 that had particular interest but took our time to observe other features of interest as we strolled along. We even came across a person from Edenbridge among the residents.
Emmeline Pankhurst is probably the most famous person who is buried there but others whose memorials we saw included a famous opera singer, a bare knuckle boxing champion, a First World War flying ace, the first man to drive at 100 miles an hour (who didn't last much longer afterwards!) and the very colourful manager of a pop group, as well as the spot where a native American chieftain once resided .
