There is vehicle access to the cemetery via the gates on Yardley Road and Clay Lane with a speed limit of 5mph.
The road network allows access to most sections, but most roads are narrow. Consider other cemetery visitors when parking. Do not park on the grave sections or grassed areas. Park on the main drive where there is more space if you can.
Some roads are uneven and bumpy due to tree roots and may be unsuitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Take care when walking along grave rows as the ground may be uneven and the grass can be slippery in wet weather.
There are ladies and gents toilets, and an accessible toilet (requires a radar key), in a toilet block behind the crematorium.
Cemetery section maps are available in leaflet holders outside the office.
The crematorium is fully wheelchair accessible and has a hearing loop for use during funerals.
Yardley cemetery is served by the number 11 bus route which stops outside the Yardley Road gate.
Due to the renovation of Yardley Crematorium, the Book of Remembrance room is currently closed. You can view entries in the digital Book of Remembrance, which is near to the book room.
