Brief description of site
The informal design and planting was the result of applying picturesque theories of landscape design to a burial ground. A more formal area, dating from the late-19th century, was laid out in the old walled garden. The cemetery provides the setting for a number of significant funerary monuments.
Brief history of site
Dean Cemetery was laid out from 1845 onwards by William Cousin on a site once occupied by Dean House and its grounds.
