Site: St Martin's Gardens (2 memorials)

NW1, St Martin's Gardens, Camden Street

The plaques are just inside the gates, on the wall behind the pillar. The gravestones littering this park and its name suggest that it used to be the graveyard for St Martin's Church opposite, but London Cemeteries explains that it was opened in 1805 as the new cemetery for St Martin's in the Fields, in St Martin's Lane.
