Welcome to the Home Page of The Brookwood Cemetery Society

The Brookwood Cemetery Society is a voluntary group dedicated to the preservation, history and appreciation of Brookwood Cemetery.  The cemetery was opened in November 1854, and was the largest in the world. It was originally called the London Necropolis or Woking Cemetery.

News Update

Restoration News

We have added a number of new book titles to our list of publications.

Our new restoration project is to raise money for repairs to the roof of the Wood family mausoleum.

We are currently seeking further advice on the work that is required. More news will be posted here - and in the Brookwood Express - as this project develops.

Our latest issue of Necropolis News is now available (vol. 5 no. 4).
