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.

We run guided history and heritage walks every month throughout the summer, here are the 2018 dates:

  • Sunday 20 May 2018, 10am
  • Sunday 24 June 2018, 10am
