Remembering our loved ones

The cemetery opened in 1855 and covers 13 acres of carefully maintained land in London Road. The original cemetery was extended with the addition of the new Lawn section some years ago.

The cemetery has a chapel which is available for funeral services and seats around 50 people. The cemetery is laid out in the style of a lawn cemetery with memorials sited back to back in straight lines.

Our staff provide a high level of care and maintenance to preserve the peaceful and well-kept appearance of the cemetery.

Two types of burial are available – full internment and the burial of cremated remains. It is also possible to be buried in, or to build a walled grave or vault. Cremated remains are buried in the new Lawn section. In this area graves are flat grass surfaces with headstone memorials. Cremated remains are marked by flat horizontal tablets. The Lawn area is un-consecrated ground and non-denominational.
