History

Cherry Lane Cemetery was acquired by Hayes and Harlington UDC in 1336. It was opened in 1936 with the first burial taking place in 1937 and an additional portion was consecrated in May 1944. It is so called because the former name of Shepiston Lane was Cherry Lane. The site was part of a field of 24.5 acres owned and farmed by the Hayward family.

Land next to the cemetery is still farmed at Frogsditch Farm. Once known as the Beech Wood, the land was formerly within the extensive Dawley estate, a manor recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 with a grand house, gardens and parkland.
