Opened in 1840, with a magnificent neo-Classical design, Brompton is one of the finest London burial grounds. It was conceived as a garden cemetery, as much for enjoyment by the living as to cater for the dead: J. C. Loudon advised, and Neales and Forrest supplied the plants. Sally Prothero of LDA Design leads the project team for the restoration and reinterpretation of the original vision.
