Bringing Barnet residents back to Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium

Prior to October 2013, research found residents and funeral directors were choosing other cemeteries in the borough as they were offering a more personable service and wider choices both pre and post funerals. Since taking over the management of the site, Re has transformed the business and ultimately brought users back to Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium.

About Hendon

Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium in Barnet is a multi-faith site set in 42 acres of well-maintained parkland.

With sections dedicated to the Greek Orthodox Church, the Japanese Residents Association, areas for Muslim burials, and a Commonwealth War Graves Commission maintained memorial, the grounds are an excellent place for reflection.

How have we brought Barnet residents back to Hendon?

We adopted the Stop, Listen, Grow approach to make the service as personable to all users as possible. To know more, read the full case study

Digitalisation of burial and cremation records

In partnership with www.Ancestory.co.uk we will be looking to digitalise all burial and cremation records to make the retrieval of information simpler for those researching their family tree.

Armistice Centenary Parade and Service of Remembrance

In association with the Royal British Legion Muswell Hill and Highgate branch, we will be holding a service of Remembrance at our Commonwealth War Graves Memorial. As 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the Great War, we are looking to remember all those that gave their support and lives in one of the most significant conflicts of the 20th century.
