Open Day at the Cemetery


The Cemetery and Crematorium hosts many events throughout the year. These range from history and heritage walks to nature trails around the site.

The cemetery also participates in Open House London, an event that gives you the opportunity to gain access to some of London's most famous and most fascinating buildings. During this event we run history and heritage walks and open the Modern Crematorium so people can dispel the myths regarding cremation.

Find out more about the heritage walks, nature trails and Open House London.
