Nunhead Cemetery Conservation Area is located at Nunhead, and the boundaries broadly follow the edges of the cemetery. The roughly diamond-shaped site is bordered by: Linden Grove to the northwest, Ivydale Road to the northeast and Limesford Road to the southeast. Although the dominant character of the conservation area is now derived from woodland and foliage, the buildings and fabric, including the Anglican Chapel, the Gate Lodges and monuments, particularly the Scottish Martyrs memorial, significantly add to the identity of the cemetery, having been and still remaining its ‘raison d’etre'.
