Commonwealth War Graves Commission statement regarding planned works at Camberwell Old Cemetery
24 March 2017
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) has agreed with the London Borough of Southwark that: no war graves will be disturbed during the planned works at Camberwell Old Cemetery, that no burials will take place above the war graves and that we will be able to mark graves which were previously inaccessible.
We only have responsibility for the war graves and these have all been identified and will not be affected by the works.
We follow a similar process at other sites where the war graves are exempt from any reuse scheme.
The CWGC will continue to work with the London Borough of Southwark as it develops the site.
