Pictured in 1905, Chingford Mount cemetery was opened in 1884 on the site of the house and grounds of Caroline Mount.

It was taken over by the London Borough of Waltham Forest in 1977 and the lodge subsequently replaced with a less inspiring structure.

The gates at the western main entrance survive from the 19th Century layout.

Among those buried in the cemetery are the Kray twins and other members of their family.
