Burial Facilities

Brompton Cemetery is managed by The Royal Parks. Burial space and plots for cremated remains are still available.


There are four types of facility:

Single burial spaces

Burial space is available in the western part of the cemetery (areas O and P). These are single graves for one coffin. Ashes may be buried in the plot at a later time. Only flat memorials are permitted in this area and each grave will be on lease for a period of seventy-five years and can be secured any time in advance.

Family burial spaces

Burial graves with space for two or three coffins are available in area AK. A single monolith headstone can be erected of an approved texture, colour, size and shape that is fitting with the character of this area of the cemetery. Each grave will be on lease for a period of seventy-five years and can be secured any time in advance.

Cremation plots

The Garden of Remembrance provides burial plots for ashes, in a fine lawn setting. The area of each lawn plot is one square metre and a standard sized memorial may be set into the ground. Headstones, temporary wood crosses and raised memorials are not permitted. There is a central reservation where floral tributes can be laid and there is space for up to four interments in each plot. Plot leases are for a period of thirty years and can be secured in advance.

Full size ashes grave

As an alternative to the Garden of Remembrance we offer family ashes graves in areas O,P and AK. Each ashes grave will be on lease for seventy-five years or more and can be secured in advance.

For all services and purchased spaces

  • We ask that seven days notice of interment is given.
  • There is an additional charge for all burial services.
  • All installations of memorials and inscriptions or renovations will be subject to approval by application for a works permit.
  • Temporary wood crosses may remain on grave spaces for up to two years.
  • Old floral tributes, unauthorised edging obstructions and permanent perennial plantings may be removed at the discretion of the Cemetery Manager.
  • Ashes may be buried in a biodegradable container or in the soil only.
