North Watford Cemetery has been set out to provide burial and cremation plots for a wide variety of denominations/faiths for the residents of Watford. The remaining areas around these facilities have been set aside and contains mature trees, shrub planting and annual bedding. Generally the Cemetery has been laid out to specifically cater for quiet contemplation but now it is used a lot more by local residents for walking, bird watching and as an education resource by local schools.
The Cemetery provides a focal point where grieving relatives can visit which is clean, tidy and quiet. Linked to the cemetery is Fern Way Open Space and a play space to complement the peace of the cemetery.
