Rev. James Endell Tyler (1789–1851)

"Health of towns":
an examination of the report
and evidence of the Select Committee:
ofcMr. Mackinnon's Bill: 

.... for establishing
cemeteries around the metropolis.
(p:22 1843)

The Rev, James Endell Tyler, Rector of St. Giles's - in-the-Fields, a witness of the first class, says :

" Having been there sixteen years, I never have heard of a complaint from the neighbours. We have three schools, the windows of which open into the churchyard; and we all think it a great advantage to have that free circulation of air. We have never, in any one instance, found any effluvia from the churchyard. On the contrary, it is a decidedly healthy spot."
