The vast majority of patients who found themselves in the Epsom cluster, and afterwards buried in the Horton Cemetery, originated in London. Given the class composition of those within the pauper cemetery, most resided in the poorer parts of metropolis – the East End or south of the river Thames, especially from a number of the workhouses scatted across inner-city areas and early suburbs.
Nevertheless, sometimes it is possible to track longer life journeys leading to Surrey – from rural Norfolk, the industrial North, Wales, or even the continent or empire (such as Enid Barnet) https://hortoncemetery.org/barnet-enid/
The pins of this interactive map give a sense of where the 27 patients – whose portraits have survived in these glass plate, collodion negative photographs on this website – were born and lived.
What is also obvious is the traumatic path, for some, between workhouse and asylum, or asylum to asylum, that characterised the path to Epsom.
