Streatham Cemetery opened in 1893 and was managed by the Metropolitan Borough of Wandsworth until 1965 when it came into Lambeth’s ownership.

It is now maintained as a lawn cemetery, although there are still some fine monuments of musicians, composers, dancers, and music hall artists of the 19th century.

Funeral services

A service of any denomination may be held here, or you may wish to have a service at your own place of worship first, followed by either a short committal service in the chapel, or at the graveside.

An officiant to take the service should be arranged by your funeral director, however, it is perfectly permissible for a family member to lead the ceremony.

Memorial masonry

Streatham Cemetery can permit headstone and traditional kerb sets.

Please see our regulations for this cemetery.

The Bereavement Services Team, your selected funeral director, or a stone mason can advise you on your choice of memorial and apply for the necessary permit.

The chapel

The service chapel in Streatham Cemetery is in a gothic revival-style and is furnished with a modern sound system and a small single manual chamber organ.

It is currently unavailable due to refurbishment works, but we can offer Lambeth Cemetery chapel as an alternative.

There are facilities to play CDs, mp3 or smartphone playlists which may be supplied by family and friends. Please contact the office or your funeral director for any music requests.


There are limited grave spaces for purchase at Streatham Cemetery.

Lambeth and Wandsworth residents who pay council tax in either borough have a reduced fee at Streatham Cemetery. For information on prices, please check our bereavement services fees and charges.

Granite chambers are now available for pre-purchase or immediate use.

You have the option to purchase in advance and an automatic 50-year exclusive right of burial.
