Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium

Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium is a multi-faith site set in 42 acres of parkland and contains one of the largest collections of mature trees in the London Borough of Barnet.

The site makes an excellent place for reflection, and provides visitors with the opportunity to walk in relative peace and quiet.

The Cemetery was originally developed in the Abney Park Cemetery Company Ltd and opened in 1899. The Crematorium was added in 1922, built within the cloisters that adjoined the chapel.

We have sections dedicated to the Greek Orthodox Church, and the Japanese Residents Association. We also have areas specific for Muslim burials.

The Cemetery contains a Commonwealth War Graves Commission maintained memorial to the fallen in both World Wars and has a significant number of military graves throughout the site.

Our commitment to you

In 2016, as part of our commitment to continually review and improve the services we offer, we were awarded the prestigious Institute of Cemetery and Cremation Management (ICCM) Charter for the Bereaved Gold Award.

The award is testament to the high level of care provided by our team and our continual work to maintain and develop the Cemetery and Crematorium grounds to the highest standard.
