SITE DETAILS

Sidcup Cemetery Bexley

Summary

Sidcup Cemetery opened in 1912, designed around a straight axial drive to a turning circle. The cemetery has no chapel but there is an interesting lodge decorated with burnt brick fragments. The planting is not profuse but includes Cedars and Araucaria as well as yew, and a hawthorn walk. The turning circle has three paths leading off asymmetrically, and across the north-east angle of the site there is a line of pollard limes. There are gardens of remembrance, and a new section of the cemetery was opened in Spring 2003.
