Maylands Cemetery, Havering London
Ian Blake whilst at Sutton Griffin Architects designed this modern cemetery in extensive green-belt located countryside, adjacent to the M25 motorway. The scheme includes a contemporary chapel, offices and mourner waiting facilities, as well as over 1000 burial plots integrated into a new and appropriately landscaped environment – one that is a fitting location in which to remember the deceased and also an outdoor community amenity that can be enjoyed by all.
The buildings are modern, simple and contemporary, designed to avoid nearby road noise and provide a warm and contemplative space fitting for a funeral or celebration of life – for all religious denominations.
