Cemeteries and burials
Our cemeteries team deals with funeral bookings, memorial applications, and management of our cemeteries. We also hold the burial records.
We use four cemeteries. Our two main cemeteries are outside the borough - North Sheen and Mortlake. North Sheen Cemetery is the largest and just across the road is Mortlake Cemetery. Both cemeteries lie on Clifford Avenue and Lower Richmond Road, either side of the junction at Chalkers Corner.
Within the borough we have Fulham Palace Road and Margravine Road cemeteries. It is now possible to be buried at these two cemeteries. Additionally, graves are available for purchase and reserve. Please contact the cemeteries office for more information.
The crematorium at Mortlake is not run by Hammersmith & Fulham Council.
You can contact them directly on 020 8876 8056 or you can visit the Mortlake Crematorium website.
Full Circle Festival
To celebrate the 80th anniversary since Mortlake Crematorium opened, they are opening their doors to host a day of activities, talks, education and inspiration on Saturday 29 June from 10am to 3pm.
There will be grief support charities, various hearses, bespoke coffins, food, refreshments, pop up death cafe, musicians, pets as therapy, sport and community clubs and much more.
There will also be talks and tours throughout the day and an opportunity to see the crematory.
Visit the Mortlake Crematorium website for more about the Full Circle Festival.
