Hampstead Cemetery

Hampstead Cemetery is in Fortune Green Road, West Hampstead, London NW6.

It covers 26 acres, and has a main drive and public footpath running through it from Fortune Green to Cricklewood.

The cemetery has no new grave spaces available, but there is an area for cremated remains to the north of the cemetery.

Hampstead Cemetery was opened in 1876. There are two Gothic-style chapels, which are listed buildings, and an entry lodge made of Kentish Rag and Bath stone. There has been some major work to these buildings under a scheme funded by the Heritage Lottery, as well as road improvements and new landscaping.
