Richmond Old Cemetery

Richmond Old Cemetery, Lower Grove Road, Richmond, TW10 6LY Map

At the southern end of Richmond Cemetery lies the Old Cemetery, or Richmond Old Burial Ground. Dating back to 1856, the cemetery is now a peaceful and relatively wild woodland around a Grade II listed chapel.

About the park

Richmond Burial Ground Trust looks after the site with Richmond Council. Managing the site is a balance between maintaining the historic interest and allowing the wildlife of this Site of Importance for Nature Conservation to flourish. View the management plan (pdf, 1.1 MB).

The chapel was restored and is cared for by the Environment Trust, and now houses a childrens' nursery.

Visiting the park

Public Space Protection Orders and byelaws
