Kensal Green - Stories & Poems

Thomas Hood

Curved up against the Harrow road in London is one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ cemeteries that began to girdle the capital in the Victorian Age. Gone were the overcrowded disease ridden Parish churchyards and here was a new way to rest for eternity. Acre upon acre of meandering lawn and tree lined avenues. Ornate catacombs. Beautiful sculptured memorials. Stately chapels. All enmeshed into Nature’s emotions. Peace, perfect peace. In this volume we bring you the works of Kensal Rises most famous residents: Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, William Makepeace Thackeray, Alice Meynell and Thomas Hood. And we start with the poem by GK Chesterton who although not buried here immortalised it with ‘The Rolling English Road’.
