The Cemetery Gates

​The City of London Cemetery and Crematorium Grand Entrance

The City of London Cemetery and Crematorium is a stunning Grade I listed landscape in the heart of East London that has been open since 1856. Our 200 acre site provides a picturesque, safe, parkland atmosphere for thousands of visitors 365 days of the year, and offers beautiful formal gardens, well maintained roadways, tree lined avenues and local heritage.

We are one of the largest municipal cemeteries in Europe and anyone may be buried here irrespective of City connections or religious beliefs. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and providing the community with a sympathetic and professional facility.

Our site is rich with architecture, ecology, geology, horticulture and history and we have the honour of being the first Cemetery to be awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award, the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales. Amongst the famous people buried here are Sir Robert Hooke, Bobby Moore and two of the Jack the Ripper victims.
