Situated between Hospital Bridge Road and Percy Road, the cemetery opened in 1868. The cemetery offers new Traditional graves, a Children's section and an area for the burial of Cremated Remains. There is a chapel which is available to people of all faiths, for funeral or memorial services.
The Chapel was designed in 1867 by Charles Jones. A wheelchair is available within the Chapel if required, and there is pushchair/wheelchair access. An electronic keyboard is provided, and there are CD facilities. An induction loop system has also been fitted. Twickenham Cemetery Chapel seats approximately 50 people, and there is room for about 20 people to stand.
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.
If you have found a person using our Burial Registers Search, and would like to visit the grave/s, you can download a map of the cemetery.
As the cemetery is quite large, you may wish to purchase a section plan for £2 which will help you to find the exact grave. The section plan can be posted, faxed or emailed to you. Please contact the Cemetery Office if you would like to take up this option.
Buses: H22, 110, 481.
Work to extend the cemetery started in August 2007. The new area on the site of former allotments has been planted with an avenue of rowans, jasmine creeper along the fence, plus three silver birch trees, and wild flowers.
The improvements include new parking bays, and visitors are asked to use them, rather than driving on the grass.
We are open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm, excluding Public Holidays, Christmas and New Year.
