The Zoroastrian burial ground in Brookwood Cemetery, Surrey, was opened in 1862 and constitutes a continuing record of Zoroastrian presence in the UK. The only burial ground of its kind in Europe, it adds to a continuing narrative of how the Zoroastrian diaspora adapts to changing political and cultural circumstances. Accordingly, the phrase We are like sugar in the milk refers to how Zoroastrians will merge into, and contribute positively to, a host society. Whereas Zoroastrian burial practices in South Asia and Iran are carried out as sky burials in ‘towers of silence’, it has not been possible to continue this practice in the UK. Based on a description of the Zoroastrian burial ground in Brookwood, this paper will argue that the burial ground, in its layout and use of sepulchral objects, reflects both an adaptation to the burial conventions of the country of abode and a strong awareness of the core of Zoroastrian beliefs.
