Mortuary Chapel, Stoke Newington High Street, Abney Park Cemetery N16 - Hackney

Gothic Revival cemetery chapel, dating from 1839. The chapel is situated in the centre of the early C19 cemetery. A first phase of repairs to the roof, spire and high-level stonework was completed in 2017, with funding from Hackney Council and Historic England. The Local Authority has been awarded a Stage II pass from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for a project to improve the cemetery landscape. This includes a second phase of repairs to the chapel, enabling it to be used for community uses and events.
