Kensal Green Cemetery is a cemetery in Kensal Green, in the west of London - one of London's Magnificent Seven Cemeteries

1832 Founded as the General Cemetery of All Souls, Kensal Green, by the barrister George Frederick Carden, the cemetery was incorporated in 1832 (the year that profit-making cemeteries became legal) as a private company and is the first and therefore oldest of the 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries.

1833 Kensal Green Cemetery was consecrated on 24 January 1833 by the Bishop of London. The Church of England was allotted 39 acres and the remaining 15, clearly separated, were given over to Dissenters, a distinction deemed crucial at the time.
