Did you know that Waterloo Station once had an adjoining bit called London Necropolis railway station? And yes, it does have to do with death. The word 'necropolis' means cemetery, however there wasn't actually a graveyard here. The railway was established in 1854 to transport bodies to a burial ground in Surrey, because of the overcrowding of cemeteries in London. It can also lay claim to having the best natural lighting of any station in the capital, thanks to its glazed roof.
