We visited here to find an old family grave. You can go into the office and they will help you find graves on their maps. The staff members were most helpful. The graveyard is quite higgledy-piggledy and we had quite a time finding our grave...More

My last visit to Kensal Green Cemetery changed my view of Harold Pinter, I literally stumbled upon his grave, I was looking at another grave when I tripped over his grave, no headstone, little evidence that it was a recent grave. Clearly a man with...More

I knew in advance that there would be a lot of famous people to find, as well as some of my own ancestors. With hindsight I should have done a tour as the place is very big and pretty complicated. Well worth the visit though.

We didn't do a tour but loved a wander around to see the eclectic mix of graves, some grand and some totally strange. Some great photo opportunities. Would love to do a tour, to hear the tales, if I every visit again.
