The little mortuary at St George in the East and its reincarnation as a museum
Excellent pictures and history from Flickering Lamps!
St George’s Gardens, the park on the site of the former churchyard of St George in the East in Stepney, is a neat, peaceful place – when I visited, the play area was full of children, and other people were relaxing on benches or looking at the old monuments near the church.
