Armed cops were called to the cemetery and cordoned off the area as they scoured the crime scene.
A Met Police spokesperson said in a statement: “Officers, London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance attended and found a man suffering from stab injuries.
“Despite the efforts of emergency services he was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Enquiries are ongoing to trace his next of kin.”
Mourners at the cemetery were not allowed to leave while cops investigated, MyLondon reported.
A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and he remains in police custody.
Cops searched the area for more information on the fatal attack.
A witness told MyLondon that four cop cars raced to the scene at the time of the stabbing.
They said: “I tried to get a picture but the police hurried me off – now there’s a helicopter circling.”
Meanwhile in Brixton, South London, a man in his 20s was also stabbed to death on Sunday night.
Cops were called just before 6pm to a street in the area after reports of an attack.

Later the same night, a woman in her 30s was shot and injured on Broadway Market in Hackney.
