Rectory Lane Cemetery

The Rectory Lane Cemetery is a beautiful green haven just off the high street in Berkhamsted, open all day, every day. 

This once forgotten Victorian cemetery was transformed by a huge volunteer-led restoration project, funded by the National Lottery. It is now full of accessible scenic path-ways and sculpted seats, including a Read in Peace seat, perfect for getting lost in a book; a Garden of Remembrance with a Celebration of Life Wall and War Memorial; and a zone dedicated to wildlife study and habitat with stunning views across the town.

The Rectory Lane Cemetery, from dead space to living place, winner of the Green Flag Community Award, and Berkhamsted Citizens Association Environment Award.
