london necropolis / brookwood cemetery

When l was last in that there London and waiting for a train back oop north, l was trying to remember where the old station was for the London Necropolis Railway, which used to be at Waterloo station, and took the dead of London out to Brookwood Cemetery in special trains.  I looked for it (and asked) around Victoria station, but no one had heard of it, and l later found it was actually at Westminster Bridge Road.  I forgot about this on my return, until l came across the book above, and the Brookwood Cemetery website.  Maybe l'm just morbid (or strange), but l would have been interested in seeing those trains in the past (but even l'm not that old).
