Memorial

Kensal Green (All Souls') Cemetery contains burials of 473 First World War graves which form a plot in the south-west section of the cemetery, the rest form small groups or are scattered throughout the cemetery. A screen wall in the First World War plot (Sect. 213) records the names of casualties of both wars whose graves could not be individually marked. The General Cemetery of All Souls, Kensal Green, is one of Britain's oldest public burial grounds. One of the world's first garden cemeteries. It opened in 1833, and still conducts burials daily. The cemetery now covers some 72 acres (29 hectares) between the Grand Union Canal and Harrow Road in West London.
