Walthamstow Cemetery


Walthamstow (Queens Road) Cemetery
Queens Road
E17 8QP

The cemetery covers 11 acres and opened in October 1872. It was started by the Walthamstow Burial Road who had the two chapels and belfry, with the lodge, coroner's court and sundry buildings erected.

The cemetery is now full, except for when it needs to re-open family plots.

Many of the family graves have been neglected for years.
