Opened 1952. 2.5 acres. Send PC. 28 Send Road, Send, Woking GU23 7ET. 01483 479 312.

Visited 2008 - Cemetery is on a hill at the end of a spacious but narrow residential road. The small cemetery – 2.5 acres – was opened in 1952 and is in an open garden style approached through iron gates. It has no buildings nor mausolea and is fenced off from gardens with trees along the main paths. No plantings allowed and few graves have curbing. Seats along the boundary.

Well cared for, no laying down of memorials and plenty of space for future burials. It seems to have quite a large RC area.
