        Famous Burials
        S E P T E M B E R  0 8

        Putney Vale is the final resting place for many people, and up to the end of the year 2005 over 55,000 burials have taken place and over 104,000 cremations. Among all these people many famous names have been recorded and it is interesting to note the names below. For burials the graves are numbered and split into sections which are signposted as 'blocks'. Physically locating a grave with the numbered system used is almost bewildering given the number of graves there:
