Cemeteries and crematoria

Our cemetery and crematorium grounds are currently operating restricted opening hours for visitors. Please check the individual site for more details.

During periods of inclement weather, extreme high winds, heavy snow and/or severe ice cemeteries may not be opened or may be restricted to pedestrian access only.

The latest Government advice on life events and ceremonies is that the number of people permitted at a funeral remains unchanged; so up to 30 people can attend.

However, as a result of that latest advice, attendance permitted at wakes and other linked commemorative events has been increased from 6 to 15 people, effective from 12 April 2021.

It is anticipated that this will increase further on or after 17 May 2020 to enable up to 30 people to attend a wake or other commemorative event.
