The Kilmorey Mausoleum, in St Margarets in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, is a Grade II* listed mausoleum in the style of an ancient Egyptian monument and has been described as a “fine example of an Egyptian-style mausoleum, with an unusually good interior”. Designed by Henry Kendall junior (1805–88) and built, at a cost of £30,000,in pink and grey granite with a bronze door, it was commissioned in the 1850s by the 2nd Earl of Kilmorey (1787–1880) and contains the bodies of the Earl and his mistress, Priscilla Anne Hoste (1823–1854).

Many walk past the ubiquitous brick walls with no idea of the gardens and tomb behind.

Hidden away, this Egyptian style tomb has exotic origins and a colorful history. It was built in the early 1850s by the Earl of Kilmorey for his mistress, Priscilla Hoste. They had a son, but she became terminally ill with heart disease and died in 1854.

The garden is open to the public only a few times a year
