Chapel services

In line with Government guidance due to coronavirus, we are currently not allowing chapel bookings in any of our cemeteries.

East Sheen Chapel is available for people of all faiths and beliefs to use for funeral or memorial services. The chapel can seat approximately 70 people, and a further 20 standing.

Attending a funeral

If you are attending a funeral by car, please park inside the cemetery gates at the end of Kings Ride Gate, 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.

Help with accessibility

There is wheelchair/pushchair access and an induction loop. A wheelchair is available if required. There is an electronic keyboard and CD facilities.

Locate a grave

If you have found a person using our Burial register search, and would like to visit the grave/s, you can download a map of the cemetery.

As the cemetery is very large, you may wish to purchase a section plan for a small fee, which will help you to find the exact grave.
