Entrance to Necropolis Station, Waterloo, London, 1890: Just outside Woking, in Surrey, is Brookwood Cemetery. The cemetery was opened by the London Necropolis Company in 1854 as an out-of-town cemetery; London was struggling to accommodate the dead in its inner city graveyards, and so this vast space (500 acres) was acquired. The dead of London would reach the cemetery via a special train station, the London Necropolis Railway Station, which was next to Waterloo.
