Brompton Cemetery

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone…

Brompton Cemetery, Fulham Road, Kensington & Chelsea, SW10

…Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone…

Brompton Cemetery, Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, SW10

…Silence the pianos and with muffled drum…

Brompton Cemetery, Fulham Road, Kensington & Chelsea, SW10

…Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

From WH Auden’s Funeral Blues (1936)
