Situated between Sheen Common, Richmond Cemetery and Richmond Park, the cemetery opened in 1905.
The cemetery offers new traditional style graves, and a Natural Burial Area. There is a chapel which is available for people of all faiths and beliefs to use for funeral or memorial services. The chapel was designed in 1906 by Reginald Rowell.
There is wheelchair/pushchair access and an induction loop. A wheelchair is available if required. There is an electronic keyboard and CD facilities. East Sheen Cemetery Chapel can seat approximately 70 people, and a further 20 standing.
If you are attending a funeral by car, please park inside the cemetery gates and wait for the cortege to pass. You can then drive through following the cortege to the graveside. If there is a service in the chapel before the burial, please park on the roads around the chapel building, making sure that the entrance to the chapel is kept clear for the funeral cars.
