19th century designs for the construction of a pharaonic mausoleum upon Primrose Hill, in North London, proposed by Thomas Willson of the Pyramid General Cemetery Company; image from the book Necropolis: London and Its Dead, by Catharine Arnold. As the author describes:
Constructed from brick, with granite facing, the plans comprised a chapel, office, quarters for the Keeper, Clerk, Sexton and Superintendent, four entrances and a central ventilation shaft. A series of sloping paths would allow bodies to be moved. Each catacomb took up to twenty-four coffins and could be sealed up after all interments had been completed. Resembling a beehive, it would be a thing of awe and wonder to all who saw it(…) At an estimated cost of £2,500, this massive mausoleum, higher than St. Paul’s, would contain five million Londoners.
