Entrepreneurs of death: the Westminster Bridge Road entrance to Necropolis Station, Waterloo, in 1890. The dead of London would reach Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey (also known as the London Necropolis) via a special train line, the London Necropolis Railway, whose London terminus was next to Waterloo but operated independently. Both the cemetery and the railway were built by the London Necropolis Company in 1854 as London was struggling to accommodate the dead in its inner city graveyards.

London’s Cemetery Station handled funeral traffic for the giant Necropolis cemetery at Brookwood in Surrey.
