Charlton Cemetery

Charlton Cemetery was opened in 1855 by the Charlton Burial Board and is located between Charlton and Woolwich in south east London. It was created as a result of the Metropolitan Burials Act of 1852, which allowed Parish vestries such as Charlton (St Luke) to appoint burial boards to provide new spaces for interment of the dead.

The cemetery is owned and operated by Greenwich Council and covers 15 acres of ground. It reached full capacity in <insert year> and the total number of burials is over 36,500.
