A place to come and reflect
Dec 2019
Well I stumbled across this when checking out the Barons Ct Tube Station nearby.

I entered thinking it was just a gardens (Margravine) however venturing further revealed the cemetery. It was well kept and made for a good place to discover some of the history of those interred there, there appeared to be what was a small disused Chapel too.

If you are in the area and just want somewhere quiet to sit, relax and perhaps reflect on things then this is a good place to begin.

Nothing for the average tourist to see.

Used to live close by and never noticed this before. So Hammersmith Cemetery, also known as Margravine Cemetery is former cemetery, that's been restored by the council and designated a 'Garden of Rest'. Kind of like a public green space where many of the original gravestones and burial grounds remain. The grounds are generally well kept and has plenty of paved paths and some benches.

Nothing for the average tourist to see.

This cemetery offers a walkway to local residential areas from dawn to dusk.

Many old graves here are worth a visit if you are interested in local history.

For those that like squirrels there are a few here that a great photographic models!

This is a better shortcut from Barons Court station to Fulham than a real site to go and see but well kept and old enough to be interesting to linger a little on your way through.

Hauntingly Beautiful

Truely beautiful grounds. My only disappointment was I could not find anywhere to buy the guide book and there was no one to ask. But besides this it was a wonderful visit and well worth it.

Well kept ....thought a bit spooky in winter
Jul 2015
I used the path thru cemetery for s number of years to cut from tube station across to the river. It's quite a large space and well kept. Seen some sights within during my walks across...drunks, druggies, drop outs, picnic parties and general punters. Encountered a couple of police cars once speeding through. Lots of Victorian grave furniture and monuments to admire. Found the place quite creepy at times on grey November evenings.

Margravine Cemetery 1868
Apr 2014 • Family
Margravine Cemetery, also known as Hammersmith Cemetery
Designed by local architect George Saunders, Margravine Cemetery was opened in 1868 on a site previously occupied by market gardens and orchards, known as Fulham Fields. The first burial took place on 3 November 1869.
A lovely and well-kept cemetery which has a good amount of benches and grass allowing you to sit outside and read, chat to friends or watch the world go by
