Archaeologist Chris Constable said a range of burial types have been found from stacked graves where the poor were buried in stacked coffins, to 25 crypts for use by wealthy families.
He said: "The churchyard is likely to have been here since at least 1086, if not earlier."
The burial ground was in use during the middle of the 1800s when the London suburb was one of the most densely populated.[tweetmeme][Full story] Story: BBC News | Photo: BBC News
