New cremated remains plots can be purchased for Greenford Park, South Ealing, Acton (from 1 April 2020) and Hortus Cemetery.    The plots measuring 3ft x 3ft (90cm x 90cm) can take up to 4 cremation urns for burial.

Cremated remains can also be interred in our newly installed columbarium, which is located in the rest garden at Greenford Park Cemetery.

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 is a section for Muslim burials at Greenford Park Cemetery and Hortus Cemetery. Burials without a coffin in a burial chamber can be arranged.   Interments in traditional Muslim graves require coffins or caskets, and are usually carried out within 48 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.

Scattering of ashes

Arrangements can be made to scatter ashes in the rose garden at Hortus Cemetery in Southall or beneath a memorial tree within the woodland burial area at Greenford Park Cemetery.
