Battersea New Cemetery

about the cemetery

Battersea New Cemetery (Morden) was opened in 1891 and has a chapel where services can be conducted. This cemetery has been declared a site of metropolitan importance for nature conservation due to the variety of rare grasses and wildflowers found here, and the grounds are managed as part of an ecological management plan.


There are 110 species of wildflowers and grasses and the site is also home to some 256 invertebrate species. Many of these invertebrates thrive in the large old trees here, although some are easier to see such as the 13 species of butterflies and the 11 types of ladybird. Most areas of the cemetery are cut at least once a year to ensure that invasive plants do not dominate the finer, more delicate wildflowers. Visit on warm or sunny days between May and late August for the best displays of wildflowers, butterflies and ladybirds.
