We’ll have a limited number of tickets available to sell at the next Crossbones Vigil at the gates in Redcross Way – gather for 7pm on 23rd October.

  1. I’m really inspired by the graveyard. I am new to London. I just discovered it recently and did a blog about it, then found you through the tags! It’s not the history that facinates me but the reaction of the present day people. Of local relevance reflecting heroism so close to home.Great post hope you enjoy mine too: http://wp.me/pUZTD-jI
