Muslim burials

Harrow Council provides for the burial of persons of the Muslim faith at the Harrow Weald Cemetery, Clamp Hill, Stanmore.

The Muslim section is designated as section “A” and is located immediately on the right as a person enters the cemetery from the gate on the Uxbridge Road (adjacent to the bus stop).

Interments are arranged via a Funeral Director through the cemetery office: 

  • Tel: 020 8424 1596
  • Office hours are Monday to Friday 9:00 AM till 12:00 Noon
  • Burial times are Monday – Friday 9.30 Am to 11.30 a.m. and 1.15 p.m. - 3.45 p.m.

Burials

For all interments a wooden coffin or casket must be used. Graves on the Muslim section are orientated in accordance with religious requirements and are excavated to a depth sufficient for one interment only.

Due to declining land reserves this authority operates a policy of allocating the next available grave space. Therefore it is not possible to select a space, but an appointment can be made to view an allocated plot once a booking for a burial has been confirmed.

Fees

The council operates two tariffs for cemetery fees. One tariff for persons permanently resident in the borough at the time of death and a tariff for persons who were not permanently resident in the borough at the time of death.

In accordance with current policy, cemetery fees are doubled (as shown in the schedule) when the deceased was not a resident of the Borough at the time of death. For the purposes of verifying any information supplied, the address given as being the permanent residence of the deceased at the time of death will be checked against the electoral register.

In the absence of registration, non-resident fees will automatically apply unless the person or persons making the funeral arrangements can supply conclusive documentary evidence that the deceased was resident at the given address at the time of death.

Please contact the cemetery office on telephone should you require any further information, via the details below.
