Brief History

Sydenham Cemetery was opened in 1896 but still has room for new burials. It is typical of older style cemeteries, featuring mostly large memorials with concrete surrounds, but it also allows for standard upright memorials and plaques on beams on the newer area.

A new ashes and full interment area has been developed on the site of the old Sexton's house.
