Kensal Green Cemetery, London: Part II: Some Details

"For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen; Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green."

(G. K. Chesterton's poem The Rolling English Road)

The Kensal Green Cemetery is the first of the "Magnificent Seven" which are seven cemeteries founded by the london citizens in the 19th century. It was opened  1832.

Here are some photos that show details on some newer graves. The Teddybear was in my mind particulary touching but it does not appear on a grave of a child but on a grave of an eldery couple. Still, it's touching anyway.
