Cemetery notes and/or description:
Woolwich Cemetery is in two parts, west (old) and east (new). The old part was founded in 1856 by Woolwich Burial Board who laid out the 12-acre west site, which was formerly part of Plumstead Common.The east site was bought in 1885 and is still in use. In the newer, eastern cemetery is a small relief sculpture on the grave of of Sister Gladys Richards-Lockwood (d.1955) shown with spectacles in her nurse's uniform,and the grave of Thomas Monaghan VC is here. Amongst the 800+ names recorded here are nearly 700 civilian casualties of WWII whose deaths occurred in, and were reported by, the Coroner for Woolwich Metropolitan Borough. It is by no means certain that all are actually interred here.Indeed, many of Woolwich civilian war dead have, in May 2013, been discovered to have been laid to rest to rest in Plumstead cemetery.(text by Geoffrey Gillon)

Burials with a lettered section location are in the Old Cemetery and burials with a numbered section location are in the New Cemetery.
