To increase knowledge and appreciation of the Cemetery, the Friends of West Norwood Cemetery hold guided tours on the first Sunday of every month. The tours last about 1.5 hours, and include visits to the monuments of the most prominent individuals commemorated in the cemetery such as Sir Henry Doulton, Mrs Beeton, Baron de Reuter, Sir Henry Tate and Dr William Marsden.
Tours require pre-booking on Eventbrite (in order to manage numbers). Each month’s tour is usually posted up about a week after the previous one.

When: first Sunday of every month: 2.30pm April-October, 11am November-March.
Where: Cemetery tours start at the Cemetery Main Gate, Norwood Road, London, SE27 9JU.
