Brief Description

In 1980 the burial ground became a small public garden and all remaining headstones and monuments were then removed.


Quaker Gardens is a former Quaker Burial Ground established in 1672 by the Barking Meeting of the Society of Friends. Among those buried here was prison reformer Elizabeth Fry (d.1845). Her tombstone was moved to Wanstead Quaker Burial Ground where the Barking Meeting transferred in the late C19th.
