Long Description:
Chimeras on the tower of Hendon crematorium chapel, Hendon Park Cemetery.

"Hendon Park Cemetery was founded by the Abney Park Cemetery Company. Alfred Bonella designed the flint-faced chapel in the centre of the cemetery, opened in July 1903. The Crematorium was added 1922, built within cloisters that adjoined the chapel.

The cemetery has a rural ambience, with a stream running through it crossed by a number of rustic bridges, and, like Abney Park Cemetery, in its early days Hendon Cemetery boasted thousands of trees. Within the cemetery layout today are various separate sections devoted to particular nationalities: Russian, Greek, Swiss and Japanese, the latter planned as a traditional Japanese garden with firs and Cherry trees.

In the centre is the flint-faced chapel, to which the Crematorium was added in 1922.
