800-/7/10022 Chapels in Tottenham Cemetery


Pair of cemetery chapels. 1856-7 by George Prichett. Kentish ragstone ashlar dressings,
fishscale slate roofs with iron crestings. Anglical and non-conformist chapels linked by
shared bellcote (no bell) and small room over central arched carriageway, and porches. The
non-conformist chapel now used as a store. The structure of each chapel is identical: of three
bays with lower, angled apse and with a porch each side that forms a strong cross-axis to the
composition. Windows and bellcote all with cusped decorated tracery, the smaller windows
in the apse with square heads and with recticulated tracery in the liturgical 'west' window.
Stone cross on gables of bellcote and the small window behind it. The carriage arch is
vaulted, with stone ribs and bosses.

The interiors have open timber truss roofs, tiled floors, panelling to impost level and tinted
quarry glass. The Anglican chapel retains its pews. Late C19 stained glass in 'east' and
'west' windows, the latter depicting the resurrection. Non-conformist chapel has lost its
pews, but is unpainted and has C20 glass in 'east' and 'west' windows.
