A quiet chapel for a quiet cemetery, in which are buried many Victorian and Edwardian Cambridge academics, but whose greatest name is not British but Austrian, Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Other people buried here include Horace Darwin (one of the sons of Charles and the co-founder of the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company), Arthur Stanley Eddington (the mathematician/astrophysicist), Alfred Marshall (the economist), John Couch Adams (discoverer of Neptune) and the architect David Roberts.
