Cemetery notes and/or description:
Meath Gardens, formerly Victoria Park Cemetery sits in the Mile End and Globe Town ward, which is in Tower Hamlets rather than Hackney.All that remains of the cemetery is the gateway; the area is now a public park with no indication that it was once a burial ground.The gateway bears the initials VPC and 1845.
The London Metroplitan Archives hold a plan showing the position of the graves in the cemetery as at 1891 and a list of names and dates of death taken from headstones in 1893. The cemetery was never consecrated-it became a park in 1894.The National Archives at Kew holds the burial registers for 1853-1876.(text by Geoffrey Gillon)
