Bridlington Cemetery Chapel

Growing up I had always wondered what this building was in Bridlington cemetery. This was one of the buildings that had inspired me to do my BA in History of Art and Architecture, as I loved Gothic architecture both medieval and revival.

After some research, this beautiful building was the cemetery chapel built in the Gothic Revival style in c.1879 by the architect Alfred Smith of Nottingham and is a Grade II listed building under English Heritage. (Link)

It is a shame that this building is no longer used, but it stands as a beautiful testament to the cemetery’s heritage as a victorian, war and modern cemetery.
