Deep in London’s enormous Hyde Park Cemetery an informal pet’s cemetery briefly operated at the end of the 1800s. Row upon row of tiny tombstones mark the graves of beloved pets and companions. Now closed off to the public, this eerie memorial sits beyond iron fences out of reach.

There’s a fantastic article on the history of the cemetery at the link below, how it started as a garden cared for by a single individual and grew to house approximately 300 graves!
