Opening times for the Cemetery and Crematorium

Due to a burst water main, we have had to turn off the water supply for some areas of the Cemetery. The remainder of the taps in the rest of the Cemetery and Garden of Remembrance are working and you can still access water in the memorial chapel. We are working to restore the water supply as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. You can view our coronavirus guidance page.
