Welcome to the website of St George's Gardens, a central London garden and burial ground now almost 300 years old.

Used every week by hundreds of people living or working in the St Pancras area the Gardens contain the tomb of Oliver Cromwell's grand daughter, Anna Gibson. They are also a reminder of the dark history of body-snatching - the first recorded case took place here.

The restored Gardens reopened in Spring 2001. The Friends, formed in 1994, work with Camden Council to ensure that the Council's maintenance is adequate and appropriate, and to preserve the Gardens as a public amenity. This website will tell you about the Gardens’ past, present and future.
