According to local lore, Crossbones was once the burial ground for the 'single women', also known as 'Winchester Geese' who worked in Bankside's stews (brothels) licensed by the Bishop of Winchester.  More than 60% of the burials at the site were paupers' children.

Friends of Crossbones campaigned for many years to open the site as a garden of remembrance. BOST now has a short-term lease for this historic site from Transport for London and works in partnership with the Friends of Crossbones to enhance the garden, create educational activities and events and steer it towards being a permanent garden of remembrance.
