Cemetery information

Important Update (30/03/2020)

On the 26th March 2020, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 was approved and is to be implemented with immediate effect.

In line with this new legislation, The Crematorium and Memorial Group would like to notify all visitors that as of Monday 30th March 2020, our crematorium’s and cemeteries are now closed to members of the public, unless they are attending a funeral.

This means that, other than for the purpose of attending a funeral, no member of the public is permitted into our grounds for activities such as, visiting a memorial or laying flowers. For those visitors who are attending a funeral service, The CMG would like to remind you that no more than 10 people are permitted to enter our chapels and that everyone should follow the Government’s advice with regards to social distancing, regular hand washing and avoiding all personal contact where at all possible.

The CMG understands that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone, and whilst we have had to make these very difficult decisions, we have done so in order to ensure that we continue to provide funeral services to the highest possible standard, whilst protecting the health and safety of our families, clients and staff.


 

In the early 1900s Streatham began its transformation from a quiet village into a bustling suburb. Streatham became attractive to wealthy residents who wanted to be close to London and rows of Victorian villas sprang up. To serve the needs of this growing population Streatham Park Cemetery opened in Rowan Road in 1908.

In the early part of the 20th century it is estimated that 20 per cent of South London’s burials took place in Streatham Park Cemetery and records show that by 1917 over 30,000 burials had taken place there.

Famous names to have been buried here include the internationally renowned singer, Dorothy Squires, and comedian Tom Costello.
