The dead beneath the Dissenters' Chapel in Kensal Green Cemetery, north-west London, may rest in peace again. The builders have gone and so have the heritage guardians who yesterday celebrated the success of a remarkable pounds 525,000 rescue project. Built by the General Cemetery Company in 1834 for the use of religious conformists, the Grade II*-listed chapel fell into decay after the Second World War and in 1991 was designated by English Heritage as a "building at risk".
