About the event

A  former post-medieval burial ground, Crossbones Graveyard & Garden  of Remembrance is believed to be the last resting place of an estimated  15,000 paupers, many of whom were sex workers and children. For  years the site was almost forgotten, hiding its history behind hoardings  and under rubble. 

But since 1996 local writer John Constable with the  Friends of Crossbones have championed Crossbones, protecting the site  and promoting its important history.

Join us for our Summer outing to visit this unconsecrated memorial to the thousands of paupers  who lived, worked and died in this once lawless corner of London.

Meet at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.

Union Street, SE1 1SZ.
