Tower Hamlets Residents

We know that losing a loved one can be a difficult time. We also understand that arranging a funeral can become complex and costly. To help with the preparations and financial costs of the burial, Tower Hamlets Council has partnered with Eternal Gardens to provide Muslim residents with much needed, dedicated Islamic burial space
Eternal Gardens is a dedicated Islamic cemetery and is run by an experienced and friendly team. The team is trained to perform timely Islamic burials in accordance with established Sunnah practices and also offers Janaza salah facilities.
Families wishing to have the Janazah salah performed at the burial ground can appoint their own Imam to lead or can opt for trained individuals on site, in most cases an Alim. There are also prayer and ablution facilities on site.
Burial plots are available for £730 to Tower Hamlets residents, making it over £2,000 cheaper than the plots at similar burial grounds.
Each burial plot has a lease length of 125 years and is maintained closely to Sunnah practices with a simple hump and a uniform plaque.
Eternal Gardens is easily accessible from the borough and is within a 20 minute drive, taking the same amount of time to get to as other nearby Islamic burial grounds.
