Upend is a hamlet in the east of Cambridgeshire. It is five miles (8.0 km) south-east of Newmarket and lies in the same parish as Kirtling. Until the 15th century Upend was called Upheme which is old English for "the up-dwelling". Upend may once have been a separate village but it had been absorbed into Kirtling at some time before 1066.[1]

The population of Upend in 2013 was 70.[2] As the population at the 2011 census was less than 100 the population is included in the civil parish of Kirtling.
