Only 22 of its 57.5 acres are in use. Largest of post-war cemeteries in Greater London area. Grid iron layout. Monuments placed back to back. Architect was Albert Thomas who had designed Art Deco Institut Francais in Kensington. Beech trees along centre path. Sections for consecrated, unconsecrated, Jewish and Moslem burials. Ahmadiyya burial ground in Moslem section. Muslim and Catholic areas larger than general non conformist.
Visited in 2010 and found to be well-kept with an “elephant house” style chapel. The Moslem section was very tidy. Plot J seemed to be half-full of “guinea-graves” covering the immediate post-war period with up to 6 unrelated burials listed on standard headstones – one of these had been recently cleaned and a still-birth added at the base. Headstones in general were very ordinary and were quite closely packed in. The paths were tree-lined and the cemetery was tidy and alive. There were office and toilet/waiting room buildings at the entrance with a lot of activity in the cemetery.
