Listed Buildings & Monuments at Kensal Green Cemetery

There are fully 153 Listed monuments within Kensal Green Cemetery, in addition to both chapels, North Terrace Colonnade, Main and Upper gates, boundary wall and parish boundary stones. Historic England (formerly, English Heritage) identifies and protects England's built heritage principally by listing -- that is, recommending buildings and monuments for inclusion on statutory lists (now compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport) that recognise 'special architectural or historic interest'. Listing variously recognises age, rarity, architectural merit, method of construction, even association with a famous person or important event. Grading indicates relative architectural or historic interest:

Grade I buildings or monuments are of exceptional interest
Grade II* are particularly important, and of more than special interest
Grade II are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them

Listing currently protects some 500,000 buildings in England, of which over 90% are Grade II.
