Bunhill Fields

Bunhill Fields (of English Bone Hill for "Bone Hill" ) was used in London's Finsbury from the late 17th century until its closure in 1855 the London Nonconformists or Dissenters as a cemetery. Since 1867 the site is managed by the City of London and used as a green area. During the bombing of London by the German Luftwaffe in 1942 Bunhill Fields was heavily damaged in 1960 restoration work was therefore carried out.

Among the most famous people buried there include the theologian and writer John Bunyan ( author of the pilgrimage ), the writer Daniel Defoe ( author of Robinson Crusoe ), the poet William Blake ( author of Jerusalem), George Fox (co-founder of the Quakers ) and the composer Isaac Watts.
