Once you have your information
Once you have a grave and square number please contact the staff at the Cemeteries Office, Camberwell New Cemetery, Brenchley Gardens, London SE23 3RD, Tel: 020 7525 5600. Staff will assess whether or not access to the grave is safe.
Safe access to all parts of the cemetery is no longer possible.
Staff will let you know whether or not the grave can be found and if the memorial is present. Staff can arrange to meet the enquirer on site and show them to the grave.
Please do not attempt to enter woodland areas yourself as there are unstable monuments and unsafe trees present.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not send email enquiries to me. Grave search enquiries are only available as detailed above..
