Golders Green Crematorium and Mausoleum is one of the oldest crematoria in Britain and opened in 1901 having been designed by the architect Sir Ernest George.

Since its opening Golders Green Crematorium has become the flagship of crematoriums the world over. It has pioneered cremation and its practices. But what probably sets Golders Green apart is its association with the funerals of many of the great names of British history over the last century.

Golders Green Crematorium, as it is usually called, is in Hoop Lane, off the Finchley Road, Golders Green, London NW11, five minutes walk from Golders Green tube station. It is directly opposite an extensive Jewish cemetery. Although the crematorium deals with all religions and creeds, Golders Green is well known as an area with a high Jewish population.

The crematorium's buildings have an Italianate style, and include a notable tower, visible in the photograph below, which contains the chimney from the crematoria. The 12 acres of gardens are extensive, and contain several large tombs, two ponds and bridge, and a large crocus lawn. Another notable feature is a special children's section, which includes a swinging bench. There is also a wall dedicated to communists. There are two cremation chapels and a chapel of remembrance. There are also three columbariums containing the ashes of thousands of Londoners.
