About Us

Also known as ‘Hammersmith New’, this cemetery opened in 1926. Like North Sheen, Mortlake operates on the ‘lawn’ principle for all new graves. A separate babies’ area has been created in the non-private section. A headstone already exists on the grave for relatives to choose a two line inscription after the burial

Lovely cemetery. Very nice and kind staff on a difficult day. Hope not to visit again for all the right reasons!

The old part of the cemetery is beautiful. My only complaint is that. We got locked in. It was our fault we got there late and lost track of time but I would have thought, like other cemeteries someone would go around and remind people it would soon be closing. We got to the gate to leave just on closing time and not a person in sight, so, I assume they'd come earlier than they should and locked up. There is no number visible to call out of hours. We called the police and it took them a while to locate someone in the council, who in fact turned out to be very unhelpful. In the end we called the fire brigade. Terrible use of emergency services but unless we wanted to spend the night in the cemetery we had no choice.

I visited here in February when I was exploring the area. The map suggests it has more entrances, but some were locked.

Would have have given more stars. I was at a large funeral. They had parking Marshalls which were very helpful. Lots of people could not get into the small chapel.A Lot of people had to stand outside. There are outside speakers but they were not switched on. It is so easy to check the switch on a the speaker 🔊

The toilets and waiting room were closed and boarded up. The whole cemetery was overgrown and messy. It took us ages too find my husbands grandparents grave as the place was such a mess. We normally get to it straight away. Such a disappointment. Have complained to Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
