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 and National Mausoleum Company or Woking Cemetery.
