The entrance to South Ealing Cemetery
South Ealing Cemetery was opened by the Ealing and Old Brentford Burial Board in 1861. It was originally known as Ealing and Old Brentford Cemetery. The Board had been formed in 1858 when burial space in the parish churchyard was running out. The cemetery was laid out with a series of straight drives with circular areas at intersections and an axial drive leading from the main entrance to two circular beds. The Gothic style cemetery buildings were designed by Charles Jones (1830-1913), Surveyor to the Local Board from 1863 and included two lodges, stone gate piers, and a pair of chapels. These were completed in 1873. One of the chapels was for Anglicans and one for Non-conformists. The cemetery was extended in 1890, 1907 and 1940.
