Chapel of Saint Peter-ad-Vincula, Tower of London
Also known as: Tower of London, Chapel of Saint Peter-ad-Vincula
London Borough of Tower Hamlets
Greater London  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Chapel Royal of Saint Peter ad Vincula (Saint Peter in chains)remains a place of worship for about 150 residents within the Tower of London. Ad vincula means in chains and commemorates St Peter's imprisonment in Jerusalem. The chapel was dedicated some time before the Tower was regularly used as a state prison and at first it lay just west of the tower. The chapel was in existence already before the end of the 12th century. It was destroyed and rebuilt a few times. A number of high-born and eminent persons were spared the indignity of public execution on Tower Hill and were beheaded behind the walls of the Tower on the Green just in front of the Chapel.
