Merton and Sutton Cemetery Merton

Summary

Merton and Sutton Joint Cemetery was opened in 1947. The entrance is through imposing gates with stone gate piers surmounted by urns, with a plain brick lodge to the left of the entrance, a smaller building to the right. From the entrance is a wide drive leading up to the brick chapel, designed by Albert Thomas. Either side of the drive are rose beds and an avenue of ornamental trees. There are trees particularly on the boundaries and some scattered evergreens and shrubs among the graves.
