Burials

If a funeral director is arranging the burial please allow them to make the arrangements. New graves are available at Greenford Park and Hortus cemeteries. Acton, Havelock and South Ealing cemeteries are closed cemeteries, which means that they are only used for burials in reopened family owned graves. 

Children

There is a section at Greenford Park Cemetery for the burial of pre-term babies, infants and children up to the age of thirteen. If required, the graves can be dug to allow space above for one or both parents.

Cremated remains section

There are plots for the burial of cremated remains at Greenford Park Cemetery and Hortus Cemetery. The plots measuring 3ft x 3ft (90cm x 90cm) can take up to four cremation urns for burial.

Memorials

Memorials are allowed in all our cemeteries but can only be erected by a recognised memorial mason. A ten-year memorial lease and a permit to carry out the work are both required. In the interest of safety there are regulations about the placing of memorials. Please ask your memorial mason for further information.

Muslim funerals

There are sections for Muslim burials at Greenford Park Cemetery and Hortus Cemetery. Burials without a coffin in a burial chamber can be arranged, although a chamber takes two days to prepare. Interments in traditional Muslim graves require coffins or caskets, and are usually carried out within 24 hours of the booking. This service is available Monday to Friday. Funerals can be held on Saturday but a premium fee is charged to cover additional expenses. This charge is added to the purchase and interment costs. The Muslim sections are only available for the sole use of Muslim residents of the London Borough of Ealing.

Scattering of ashes

Arrangements can be made to scatter ashes in the Rose Garden at Hortus Cemetery in Southall.
