|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There is a large car park with disabled parking adjacent to the East and West chapels and crematorium and limited parking throughout the cemetery grounds. See the associated link for a premises map and the downloads below for the locations of vehicle entrances.
From East Croydon train station take the tram to the Therapia Lane stop. The cemetery is about 500m north of the tram stop.
Croydon (Mitcham Road) Cemetery contains 190 scattered war graves of the First World War, most of them of local men. Some of the 150 Second World War burials form a small war graves plot in the Thornton Heath Extension (in Plot P.P), and many of the remainder will be found in the plots opposite. The war graves plot also contains two special memorials to casualties buried elsewhere in the cemetery whose graves could not be marked by headstones.
