HC Deb 17 April 1890 vol 343 cc681-2
DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeen shire, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, considering the great increase of property and population in the neighbourhood of Brompton Cemetery, Government will agree to close it, as proposed in 1884, and will hand it over as a disused burial ground to the London County Council, with due regard to the vested rights of interested persons, and to the policy of the Extramural Interments Act.


The Treasury is advised that it is not necessary, on sanitary grounds, to close Brompton Cemetery, and as there is a, present income of £6,000 per annum derived from the cemetery, I am not prepared to advise that it should be closed on other grounds.
