Cliveden Chapel
Also known as: Octagon Temple Grounds
Taplow
South Bucks District
Buckinghamshire  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Octagon Temple was designed by Giacomo Leoni in the 18th century as a ‘little cool room, by way of grotto' – a place to relax during summer walks in the vast Cliveden Estate. In 1893, soon after he purchased Cliveden, William Waldorf Astor employed an architect to convert it into a Chapel, with its walls and dome encrusted with mosaics. He and other members of the Astor family have since been buried there, five people so far.
