Tombstone Tuesday - Quaker Burial Ground, London

While recently visiting London, I found the Quaker Gardens, formerly the Quaker Burial Ground.  It is located near Chequer Street in the Borough of Islington, across the street from Bunhill Fields Burial Ground.

According to the brochure for Bunhill Fields Burial Ground published by the City of London:  "This is the Bunhill Fields Meeting House and Quaker Gardens.  The gardens are a small fragment of a Quaker burial ground, which was the first freehold property owned by the Quakers, bought in 1661 and used until 1855 for 12,000 burials."
