Plenty of historical interest and well explained on notice boards. Worth an hours explore. Would not venture in after dark.

“great place for a wander”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

a very interesting and atmospheric cemetery. lots to see and as I have been researching my family tree, is a great source of information. As this is in the corner of southampton common it is teeming with wildlife, woodpeckers are a common sight here.

“Fascinating and a little different!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Strange, but this is one of my fave places in Southampton. I often walk the dog there and spend ages looking at the graves and then looking at the history of them online afterwards.

I could spend all day there. It's very beautiful and any Titanic fan can find memorials and people's graves who survived the disaster. Look out for the grave of a lad killed by lightening on the Common as you enter near the Lodge.
