Heath Lane Cemetery Chapels, Hemel Hempstead

On a hilltop overlooking the town, there are two disused chapels facing each other. One was Anglican and the other non conformist.  They are similar but one has lancets at the entrance end and a gable cross, the other no crosses but cross-shaped windows at the entrance end. The cemetery dates from 1878.
