The cemetery has fallen into disrepair with only a handful of tombstones remaining. Only a few small plaques mark the areas. [November 2008]
The London Metropolitan Archives holds some papers relating to this cemetery, which show, among other things, the burial here of members of the Hart faimily. Source: David MR Shulman [March 2010]
