Easily accessed by 101 bus from Wanstead or East Ham underground stations. Beautiful gardens and monumental statuary. Very good café at entrance (open daily until 3.30pm). One suggestion I’d make is for a map identifying graves of the famous (such as Bobby Moore).

Wonderful, peaceful, sadly here for a funeral but it's a lovely last resting place to be, the various Chapels are very impressive and as you drive along the graves and tombs are interesting too

Probably one of the more bizarre reviews I have written, the only reason I have ever come here is to go to funerals, it serves it's purpose, lots of nice old headstones to peruse. There is a nice cafe just at the entrance, where you...More
