|Eastcote Lane Cemetery||Harrow|
Eastcote Lane Cemetery was established by Roxeth Burial Board and opened in 1922. It later transferred to Harrow UDC when the Burial Board disbanded. Now surrounded by suburban housing, the small cemetery has modest headstones set among the grass with trees predominantly along the Eastcote Lane boundary. At the entrance are rustic wooden gates and a picturesque red brick lodge with small turret. Around the lodge a number of palm trees and conifers have been planted. A central tarmac path runs from the entrance, crossed partway along its length by another path, the circular junction surrounded by 4 trees.

Beyond the housing to the east side of the cemetery is the massive, rather brutal but quite splendid pale grey bulk of the church of St Paul's in Corbins Lane is visible, built 1937-8 by N F Cachemaille-Day and described by Nikolaus Pevsner as 'one of his most daring modernist buildings'.
