Our stunning location within the grounds of Lambeth Cemetery includes light, open meeting rooms where we will welcome you with fresh coffee. Our state of the art mortuary is housed in a beautiful and historic 19th century burial chapel on site so we can ensure an outstanding level of care for the people we look after.
