Fortune Green is a small area in West Hampstead, London Borough of Camden.

Lying on the south-west side of the Finchley Road, Hampstead town council decided to build its overflow cemetery there in the 1840s. A guide to Hampstead Cemetery, with short biographies of selected grave occupants and maps of their location and illustrations of the more prominent monuments, was published in 2000.[1][2]

It now lies in the London Borough of Camden as a ward. The ward has existed since the May 1978 local elections and was redrawn in May 2002.[3][4] The population of this ward at the 2011 Census was 11,740 and is associated closely with West Hampstead, evidenced in the joint Fortune Green & West Hampstead Neighbourhood Plan adopted by Camden Council in September 2015.[5][6]
