Bunhill Fields is a burial ground opened in 1665 unto 1854 and has many well known peoplelaid to rest there, here are a few.
1/ John Bunyan died 1688 author of Pilgrims Progress
2/William Blake 1831 Painter and poet who wrote Jerusalem, my favourite hymn.²
3/ Daniel Defoe, died 1731 author of Robinson Crusoe, Defoe's wife died a year later and was buried in the same grave. Defoe died in poverty and originally the grave only had a simple headstone, many years later the headstone was struck by lightning and broken and an appeal was launched for a suitable memorial to be installed, this it.
4/ Is just walking through the burial ground.
There are many other well known people buried here, I including Isaac Watts, 1748, hymn writer, who composed Joy to the World and When I Survey the Wounderus Cross.
