This Cemetery is at Stoke Newington, in the London Borough of Hackney.
Originally laid out in the early 18th century , in 1840 it became a non-denominational garden cemetery, a semi-public park arboretum, and an educational institute, which was widely celebrated as an example of its time. A total of 196,843 burials had taken place there up to the year 2000.
Its particularity is the 2,500 trees and shrubs all labelled, and arranged around the perimeter alphabetically, from A for Acer (maple trees) to Z for Zanthoxylum (American toothache trees).
Place of burial for non conformists where people with no means were buried standing.
