Every year we celebrate the best of the funeral industry with the Good Funeral Awards. There isn’t a ‘Worst Crematorium of the Year” award but if there was such an accolade, we have a strong contender.
Introducing our readers to West London Crematorium, as photographed on Thursday 30th June 2016.
Decaying curtains, stained carpets, seating you wouldn’t want to sit on, general disrepair and so much more.
Shoddy’s a good word. As is lazy. So is unacceptable. All befit the state of this crematorium.
Our question: Is this the worst crematorium in Britain? It’s over to you.
West London Crematorium
Kensal Green, Harrow Road, London, W10 4RA
Owned and managed by the General Cemetery Company

Ed’s note – we’ve contacted the General Cemetery Company and asked for a response. We’ll keep you updated.
Full disclosure – I took the photographs below when I returned to the crematorium to look for my lost book of funeral poetry, the day after taking a service in the West Chapel.
