Mount Cemetery is a cemetery in Guildford, Surrey, England. It is situated to the south of Guildford on a hill overlooking the town centre. The cemetery is now full and is no longer able to accept further requests for burials unless the grave has been reserved or there is an existing family grave.
Three particularly famous people have been laid to rest in Mount Cemetery:
- Edward Carpenter, the gay socialist poet and activist
- Charles Lutwidge Dodgson ("Lewis Carroll"), the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
- Edwin Heron Dodgson, the younger brother of C. L. Dodgson, a missionary
- All five of Charles and Edwin Dodgson's sisters are also buried here
