Hornchurch Cemetery

COVID-19 Update

Following further government guidance the London Borough of Havering reopened it’s cemeteries from 9.00am on Tuesday 21 April 2020 to allow families to visit graves.

Families are asked to ensure that during visits they comply with government guidance regarding social distancing, for their safety and that of our staff.  The cemeteries will be open for mourners only, if they are used for recreational purposes the decision will be reviewed.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind visitors that dogs are not allowed in our cemeteries unless assistance dogs.

If you already own a grave and wish to have a burial, please let us know. There is no chapel at Hornchurch, although you could use one of our chapels on another site if you wish.
