Woodlawn Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in New York City and is a designated National Historic Landmark.
A rural cemetery located in the Bronx, it opened in 1863, in what was then southern Westchester County, in an area that was annexed to New York City in 1874.
The cemetery covers more than 400 acres (160 ha) and is the resting place for more than 300,000 people. Is is also the site of the Annie Bliss Titanic Memorial, dedicated to those who perished in the 1912 maritime disaster.
Built on rolling hills, its tree-lined roads lead to some unique memorials, some designed by McKim Mead & White, John Russell Pope, James Gamble Rogers, Cass Gilbert, Carrère and Hastings, Sir Edwin Lutyens, Beatrix Jones Farrand, and John LaFarge.
The cemetery contains 7 British Commonwealth war graves - 6 officers of the British Army of World War I and an airman of the Royal Canadian Air Force of World War II.
In 2011, Woodlawn Cemetery was designated a National Historic Landmark, since it shows the transition from the rural cemetery popular at the time of its establishment to the more orderly 20th-century cemetery style.
