Description

Access to Cowgate Cemetery is past a row of Alms Houses to the gates at the top of Cowgate Hill. When the nearby St Mary's churchyard was closed for burials in 1873, the Mowll family donated about three acres on the foothills of the Western Heights for the creation of Cowgate cemetery. Burials took place from approximately 1837 to 1870. The Cemetery is now a centre of wildlife and a place to discover the history of the people of Dover as the tombs and headstones tell of the lives of Dover's leading citizens in the 19th century. You will also find buried here, English people who died in France, whose bodies were brought back to England as well as many unknown, whose bodies were washed up on Dover's seashores over the years.
