Willesden Cemetery

With Stephen Burstin

Walks & Trips

We will visit the last resting place of both the famous and the unknown whose varied lives produce for us stories that are enthralling, inspiring, tragic and even humorous: Strolling through this 140-year-old cemetery we come across the scientist who was robbed of the glory for one of the 20th century’s greatest scientific discoveries; four chief rabbis each with revealing stories; the father and son Rothschilds who could not have been more different; the London teenager who emigrated to the other side of the world and became a Prime Minister; the royal illusionist who invented the incredible saw-the-lady-in-half trick; two business giants, one in groceries and one in furniture; Lady Chutzpah who stunned the world with her flamboyance; the son of a second hand clothes dealer who literally went from rags to riches in South Africa …and there are other lives to celebrate and tragic young deaths to lament on this engrossing tour.
