Few little facts about Kensal-Rise
Kensal Rise is a neighbourhood in the London Borough of Brent. The area is also referred as Kensal Green. The names Kensal Green and Kensal Rise are used interchangeably to denote the same neighbourhood, although some do attempt to differentiate between the areas based on proximity to the local tube and train stations.
Kensal Green is the site of Kensal Green Cemetery which is one of the finest Cemeteries in London. It was consecrated in January 1833 by the Bishop of London. The Cemetery was the Brainchild of Barrister George Frederick Carden who was inspired by La Cimitiere du Pere-Lachaise in Paris. It was the oldest English Cemetery still in operation.
For such a small area of London, Kensal Rise has attracted a disproportionate amount of media coverage for a number of highly newsworthy crimes leading to distasteful jokes about the 'appropriately situated cemetery'.
