St Pancras Cemetery has a traditional style with a mixture of old and new graves. It was established in 1854, the burial chapel was built in 1854 but at the moment closed for refurbishment. All burial services are held in the Islington burial chapel.

The cemetery is surrounded by lawns with flower beds and many mature specimen trees. The cemetery has a selection of grave sites, for both earthen burial and special graves for cremated remains. We have also introduced vaults and mausolea.

There is NO filming or still photography in the cemetery grounds unless permission has been granted in advance.
