Supposedly one of the seven greatest Victorian cemeteries, the Nunhead cemetery now lies in ruins. It contains monuments erected in the memory of prominent citizens of the time. Sadly what remains now, are the remnants of an era long forgotten. We didn't get a tour, so we merely explored, while reading the inscriptions on the various graves. As I walked, I wondered about entire families that had been buried under one tombstone. Some graves belonged to children who lived in the 1800s. While a majority lay hidden under plants, some graves had accompanying angels that seemed to be missing parts. Peaceful and calm, though mysterious, the place is reminiscent of a Victorian era gone by. A lot of war heroes have also been buried here, and interestingly, several muslim burials have taken place in this cemetery as well. Talk about communal harmony eh!
