During 1767, ‘Great Christian Burial ground’ has been ceremonially opened for the burial ground of European expatriates who were settled in Calcutta during the colonial period. Later in 19th century it is named as “Park Street Cemetery". The cemetery were being well known for notable European figures like ‘Rose Aymler’, Elizabeth Barwell, George Bogle, Augustus Cleveland, Charles Short and many more. The burial ceremony cemetery was closed in 1840 due to lack of space and afterwards it has been extended extended on the northern edge of Park Street. Now that place is called Lower Circular Road Cemetery.
The entire eight acres land is surrounded by high brick walls and inside there are around 1600 tombs with cenotaphs, tablets and epitaphs. The grave is full of tall shady trees which remains covered with blooms and flowers in season. The entire area is preserved by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) hence the area is very much maintained and full of peace. Still the renovation happens where it is needed. The interior garden and path is pretty much well decorated. Most of the architectural designs of the tombs reflect classical European styles. Few are resembles with Hindu style and also a mixture of replicas of Orissan ‘rekha deul’.
