Nunhead Cemetery Photos

Abney Park 1Whilst on the subject of Nunhead Cemetery (see previous post) I came across these websites which contain great photos of the cemetery. A couple of the sites include 360 panoramic photos, what clever people. I am just pleased when I produce a straight forward photo that is in focus and doesn’t cut anyone’s head off !!

The site has a good page on the grave stone symbols that can be  found within the cemetery, all with their particular meaning. They also offer an online book store offering books on the cemetery and the surrounding area.
