Explore Epsom’s Victorian cemetery and visit the final resting place of the town’s lords and ladies. Mrs Beeton’s mother, Elizabeth Dorling, enjoyed the dubious privilege of being the first person to be officially interred in 1871, but the first burial was much earlier.

Discover monuments to people ranging from war heroes to exotic dancers, jockeys to politicians… and learn why Epsom’s war memorial is situated here rather than in the town centre.

Meet at the main gate off Ashley Road, Epsom KT18  5BP.
