Opening times

The cemetery park is open 24 hours a day every day of the year. The main entrance (vehicle gate) on Southern Grove is open dawn until dusk. The pedestrian, bike and wheelchair accessible gates on Hamlets Way and Cantrell Road are open 24 hours.

Meeting point

All events meet at the Soanes Centre, Southern Grove, London, E3 4PX unless otherwise stated.


The Cemetery Park paths are flat or very gently undulating, with firm surfaces and no mud or steep slopes. The main paths are at least 1m wide. There are no public toilets. The Soanes Centre was built to be fully accessible in the 1990s, with a wheelchair accessible toilet. However, it is no longer accessible in line with current guidance. It is large and has support rails, but no hoist or changing bench.

PleaseĀ contact us if you need further help or information, or to book parking. Note that we don’t have a full site access statement available, but this is something we hope to have in the future.
