Hampstead Parish Church Burial Grounds
Two beautiful historic graveyards in the heart of Hampstead Village. The earlier graveyard adjacent to the 18th-century church dates from medieval times, and the more recent graveyard across the road from 1812.
Many famous (and infamous) people are buried in the two graveyards including the artist John Constable, clockmaker John Harrison (who invented the marine chonometer for calculating longitude at sea), the actress Kay Kendall and the feminist Eva Gore Booth.
Both graveyards were designated as Sites of Nature Conservation Importance (borough importance grade 1) in November 2003 and are managed as wildlife-friendly areas. The graveyards are maintained by volunteers and contain a wide variety of mature trees.
