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.
