It says -The new cemetery was renamed Allhallows-on-the-Wall and the street running past, became Bartholomew Street. A church was built in the nineteenth century at the southern end of the burial yard, named All Hallows on the Wall. It became a corset factory and then a parachute factory in the Second War, before it was demolished in 1951.
The last burials in the Allhallows -on-the-Wall Cemetery were conducted with much secrecy, at mid-night, during the cholera epidemic of 1832. Between July and October, six people from Bartholomew Street died of the disease.
