A GUIDE TO BURIALS IN THE LONDON AREA





CIVIC CEMETERIES LISTED BY LONDON BOROUGHS



Land for burials is always at a premium in London so cemeteries managed by London boroughs and the City of London may not always be within their own areas. Inner London borough cemeteries, particularly those managed by London boroughs formerly in Middlesex, may be found actually situated in outer London boroughs.

The following is a list of civic (municipal) cemeteries and crematoriums in the London area with the date that each cemetery and crematorium opened and a link or address to the local authority, cemetery or crematorium board or independent company which administers the cemetery and/or crematorium. The list of over 150 cemeteries and crematoriums is given under the headings of each present day London borough that manages the cemetery/crematorium but reference is also made to each cemetery/crematorium in its actual geographical location within particular London boroughs.
