Place
The cemetery has two chapels, one being a traditional Church of England chapel and the other being used for multi-denomination or non-religious services. It has a large Garden of Remembrance. There are 87 Commonwealth war grave burials from WWI and 97 from WWII n the cemetery. Six Victoria Cross recipients have been buried or cremated here. The burials are scattered throughout the grounds of the cemetery and a Screen Wall Memorial has been erected to record the names of those whose graves are not marked by headstones. Those who have been cremated at Putney Vale Crematorium also have their names recorded on these panels.

Notable queer burials at Putney Vale Cemetery:
• Joe Randolph "J.R." Ackerley (1896-1967), British writer and editor. Starting with the BBC the year after its founding in 1927, he was promoted to literary editor of The Listener, its weekly magazine, where he served for more than two decades. He published many emerging poets and writers who became influential in Great Britain. He was openly gay, a rarity in his time when homosexuality was forbidden by law and socially ostracized.
• Ivy Compton-Burnett (1884-1969), English novelist, published (in the original hardback editions) as I. Compton-Burnett. She was awarded the 1955 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for her novel “Mother and Son.” Compton-Burnett spent much of her life as a companion to Margaret Jourdain (1876–1951), a leading authority and writer on the decorative arts and the history of furniture, who shared the author's Kensington flat from 1919.
• David Stuart Horner (1900-1983). In the mid-1920s Osbert Sitwell met David Horner who was his lover and companion for most of his life.
• Kenneth Nelson (1930-1993). In 1968, Nelson accepted the lead in the controversial and groundbreaking off-Broadway production of “The Boys in the Band,” the first play to explore the milieu of gay life in New York City in a verbally frank manner. He and the rest of the cast went on to appear in the 1970 film version directed by William Friedkin.
• Wilfred Thesiger (1910-2003), cremated.
