Brompton Cemetery, consecrated by the Bishop of London in June 1840, is one of the Britain’s oldest and most distinguished garden cemeteries.
The cemetery is Grade I Listed on the English Heritage Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
The 39-acre (16 hectare) site lies between Old Brompton and Fulham Roads, on the western border of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, then a distant suburb and now a populous and diverse community in the heart of London.
The Friends of Brompton Cemetery work to preserve this remarkable site as a model of an historic cemetery with an active role in modern society. We help to restore and maintain the cemetery’s buildings, monuments and landscape, and encourage their full use by those sympathetic to the importance, beauty, heritage and fragility of this significant cemetery. We offer visitors Sunday afternoon tours, guidebooks, maps and postcards.
Move from South Lodge
Please Note that the Friends office will be situated in a Portacabin outside the Chapel from Monday 8th February, 2016 while the South Lodge is refurbished. We expect to be in the portacabin for at least a year before moving to new offices in the North Lodge. Contact numbers remain the same and any further changes will be posted on the website.
