We aim to deliver a professional and caring service through our sympathetic, competent and trained staff. Our priority is to ensure that all funerals are organised and conducted in a dignified and orderly manner. We understand that a meaningful funeral is an important part of the grieving process. We recognise that each person's needs are different and try to make every funeral as personal and unhurried as possible.

The Cemetery Office
East Sheen Cemetery,
Telephone: 020 8876 4511
Fax: 020 8878 8118
An answer phone service is available if your call cannot be answered personally. As we attend each burial, and are often out of the office with families, there may be occasions when the office is not staffed. However, this is usually for no longer than an hour.
So that you are seen without delay, we would ask that you make an appointment if you would like to meet with us, either at the cemetery office, or at any of our cemeteries.
There are two cemeteries in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames which are managed by Hammersmith and Fulham Cemeteries Department. These are North Sheen (also known as Fulham New) and Mortlake (also known as Hammersmith New). Telephone is 020 8878 1934.
