Architect needed for West Norwood Cemetery overhaul

London
  • Comment

Lambeth Council is on the hunt for an architect to regenerate its Grade II*-listed West Norwood Cemetery in south London

The winner of the £250,000 contract will restore monuments and landscaping across the 16ha green space and create a new visitor centre.

First opened in 1836, the historic facility is one of London’s Magnificent Seven cemeteries and is the resting place of several wealthy and influential Victorians.

Designed by architect William Tite, the Gothic Revival-style graveyard contains a total of 69 Grade II* and II-listed memorials and structures.

Notable people buried at West Norwood include news agency founder Julius de Reuters, sugar magnate Henry Tate, architect William Burges and pottery manufacturer Henry Doulton.

The new facilities will focus on the site’s history and the lives of the people buried there. A catacomb containing 1,500 coffins will also be restored.

The project received a first round Heritage Lottery Fund pass earlier this year and the appointed firm will lead the scheme through its second round application.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 9 September.
