BECKENHAM CREMATORIUM AND CEMETERY
Beckenham Crematorium and Cemetery (once Crystal Palace District Cemetery) contains burials of both wars. The 128 First World War graves are scattered throughout the cemetery, a number of them made from the Royal Naval Depot HMS 'Crystal Palace' and the Army Service Corps Motor Transport Depot at Grove Park. As many of these graves could not be individually marked, 26 casualties are commemorated by name on a screen wall. Later, forty others were found to be in locations that could not be satisfactorily maintained, and the headstones from these graves were moved into the small Second World War plot. This plot contains only ten of the 127 Second World War burials, but three casualties whose graves elsewhere in the cemetery could not be individually marked are commemorated there by special memorials.
No. of identified burials: 256
