The Cambridge General Cemetery Company was founded in 1843 by a group of local nonconformist businessmen, to provide a burial site open to all. The noted garden designer John Claudius Loudon planned the layout and planting with trees and shrubs.

The company was wound up in 1936 and a chapel (designed by the rogue Gothic architect Edward Buckton Lamb) was demolished in 1957, but Lamb's original lodge in Histon Road Link remains in use as a private residence, punningly named Grave's End. Maintenance of the cemetery is now the responsibility of the City Council with the aid of a volunteer group of Friends.

Histon Road Cemetery

Histon Road Cemetery, formerly Cambridge General Cemetery, is a cemetery in north Cambridge, England, lying off Histon Road, opened in 1842. It is notable as one of only three designs by John Claudius Loudon, who covers it in detail in his influential book On the Laying Out, Planting and Managing of Cemeteries (1843).
