West Norwood Cemetery Blog

Green Flag Awards

Amongst its many unique characteristics and qualities West Norwood Cemetery is also a unique public open space. Although it’s not designated as a park, common or recreation ground, and is managed for very different purposes, it still provides an important role to the people of Lambeth and West Norwood as a vital ‘green lung’ – it’s a safe and beautiful place to visit, walk and enjoy whilst still respecting its function as a place of burial, cremation, bereavement and reflection.

Searching for Bats

Bats can be a bit of a "marmite" animal, often dividing public opinion but we feel there is something special and uniquely calming about being in a cemetery at dusk, listening closely to the air around you, whilst trying to spot these fascinating flying mammals.
