Sydenham Cemetery

Sydenham Cemetery is one of the earlier cemeteries in Christchurch. It was opened in 1896.

Situated alongside Somerfield Park, it is typical of the older style, featuring mostly large memorials with concrete surrounds, but also allows for standard upright memorials and plaques on beams in the newer area.

The Somerfield Residents’ Association have adopted the cemetery and has carried out planting and tidying work. There are no new burial plots available in the cemetery. There are new ashes plots available and 2nd interments in burial plots or ashes interments can still take place.
