One of the northern range of boundary crosses formerly located on the south side of Burgess Road opposite the branch library and near the spring of the Boundary Brook. The name appears to be derived from Angle-Saxon byrgels, a burial place and so presumably associated with tumuli, now vanished but formerly numerous on all the high heathy ground of this neighbourhood.
Boswell Cross Stone appears in J Doswell's map of 1802 and is an obvious error for Burlstone Cross.
