History

Manor Park Cemetery & Crematorium prides itself on traditional family values, the Company having been managed by the same family since its foundation. The grave of Mr. William Nesbitt, the very first interment that took place on 25th March 1875, can still be found on the right hand side of Remembrance Road.

Other historic graves include John Travers Cornwell VC, who died from his wounds at the age of 16. John was the youngest recipient of the Victoria Cross for staying at his post in the Battle of Jutland in 1916.

Annie Chapman the second victim of Jack the Ripper was buried here in September 1888 and there is a royal connection with the large memorial to Mary Orchard, a much loved nanny to the children of Princess Alice.
