HC Deb 12 April 1878 vol 239 cc1226-7

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, seeing that several burials have lately taken place in the churchyard of Holy Trinity, Brompton, which is surrounded by a dense population in every direction and is within a mile of Hyde Park Corner, he will give orders to close the said burial-ground for all further interments?


, in reply, said, that under an order of one of his Predecessors, this churchyard was closed in 1859, the only exception being made in cases of certain graves of a peculiar character. He was told that not many interments had recently taken place there; but he had directed a special report on the subject to be made to him, so that he might have all the material facts before him with the view to consider the question. When this report was received, he would be happy to communicate it to the hon. Gentleman.
