About the event

What do we need from a cemetery landscape in the 21st century?  Accounting for the popularity of cremation and other forms of dealing  with the dead in contrast to burial, many new spaces have been designed  to deal with this change in taste. The landscape gardeners of yore have  largely made way for professional architectural practices, some attached  to high level projects such as the regeneration of Highgate Cemetery or  the first opening of a cemetery in London for fifty years. Sheldon will  highlight a number of these projects and their approach to creating new  gardens of memory and compare this to the values that faced our  magnificent garden cemeteries two centuries before.
