Brompton Cemetery is a beautiful Grade I listed landscape that sits in the heart of Kensington and Chelsea. The cemetery provides the community with 39 acres of picturesque green space amongst its busy surroundings.

As a working cemetery we are proud to offer burial space within this idyllic setting. Full information can be found in the Guide to Services, with information on pricing contained in the Scale of Charges.

Full burial plots

Plots are available in selected locations on the western side of the cemetery. Plots are sold with a 75-year lease and can be bought for either a single, double, or triple interment. Traditional monolith headstones may be erected a year after burial. Temporary wooden crosses may stay on the plot for up to two years. Plots can be bought for immediate interments and can also be secured 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 size memorial may be set into the ground. There is space for up to four interments in each plot. Plot leases are for a period of 30 years and can be purchased for immediate interments and secured in advance. Ashes are to be interred in a biodegradable container or directly into the soil.


We ask that seven days’ notice of interment is given. All paperwork must be completed and received prior to the interment as well as any fees. Funerals can take place between 8am and 2pm on weekdays, excluding public holidays.

Cemetery rules and regulations

Our regulations seek to provide the balance between individuals feelings and the need to regulate for a safe working environment which respects the heritage of the cemetery. Temporary wooden crosses may remain on grave spaces for up to two years. We do not allow planting of any shrub, plant or flower or erection of any form of fencing, boarder or the placing or ornaments. Unfortunately, if these items are placed on or around the grave, they will be removed at the discretion of the Cemetery Manager.

Please get in touch if you require any further information, or if you would like to book an appointment with a member of our dedicated bereavement team. The team at Brompton Cemetery are available Monday to Friday from 8am-3pm to talk through your requirements and can be contacted on or by phoning the cemetery office on 0300 061 2172.
