Sydenham Cemetery plans

A collection of 23 sheets of plot plans for Sydenham Cemetery.

The plot plans begin in 1896, with the first burial recorded in May 1896, before the cemetery was fully open. Details of interments were recorded on the plans up until the late 1960s. After this point plot details are recorded on the cemeteries database.

Sydenham Cemetery, Simeon Street, was developed in 1896 in response to reports that the Addington and Barbadoes cemeteries had limited space. Although approaching capacity it is still considered an open cemetery.
