West Norwood Cemetery is a very significant Grade II* listed site with huge heritage value, and also offers a vast peaceful resource in a densely populated part of the borough.
Lambeth Council, in partnership with the Friends of West Norwood Cemetery (FoWNC), have been awarded a grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to develop proposals to restore and improve West Norwood Cemetery for the future.
West Norwood has been granted a fantastic £4.8m from the Lottery. Friends of West Norwood Cemetery said the £4.8m investment would be spent on improving the cemetery’s drainage, footpaths and entrance gates.The money will also be used for works on an area reserved for the Greek Orthodox community – known as the “necropolis” or “cemetery within a cemetery”.
