Mortlake Cemetery is a cemetery in Kew[1] in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (historically in North Sheen, Surrey). It is also known as Hammersmith New Cemetery as it provided burials for the then Metropolitan Borough of Hammersmith when Margravine Cemetery was full. The cemetery opened in 1926 and is still in use.[2] It is now managed by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.[2]

The cemetery is located on Mortlake Road (the A205 or South Circular Road). The nearest London Underground station is Kew Gardens.

Mortlake Crematorium was built next to the cemetery in 1939.[3] Seventy-seven Commonwealth servicemen of World War II who were cremated at the crematorium are listed on a screen wall memorial erected by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in the cemetery.[4] They include England rugby international Vivian Davies (1899–1941) who was a captain in the Royal Artillery.[5]
