The Lost Parish (2020) by Tom Bolton and Jo Healy
This film was made in St. James’s Gardens, next to Euston Station in London at Easter 2017. The gardens are a former burial ground, and the site of the largest exhumation in British history with up to 60,000 bodies removed for the construction of the HS2 terminus. Among them were Matthew Flinders and the Christie family, and probably Bill Richmond, Thomas Spence and Lord George Gordon. Almost everything in this film no longer exists.
