SITE DETAILS

New Brentford Cemetery Hounslow

Summary

New Brentford Cemetery was opened in 1903, the C of E section consecrated by the Bishop of Kensington in May of that year. The cemetery has its original entrance gates and gate piers, with pine trees planted along the drive to the small brick chapel with its picturesque spire, and at the perimeter at the western end. In front of the chapel, the Great War Cross was erected by the Imperial War Graves Commission and unveiled by Col Horlock in April 1925. Of Portland stone with a cross of St George, this was a replica of those placed on the battlefields of France, Belgium and Gallipoli. The cemetery is bordered by the railway and has chain link fencing at the eastern end, beyond which are still fields.
