St Paul's Churchyard, Bermondsey (also known as Bermondsey New Church)

Introduction

The Burial Board had already carried out some tree planting in the 1890s prior to conversion to a public garden; in 1912 the headstones were moved to the perimeter, walks were laid out and railed, trees were planted along the walks and it was opened as a public garden in 1913.
