Plan Your Visit

Whether attending a funeral, researching your family history or visiting a loved one, we hope the following information will assist you in planning your visit.  If you are visiting as part of a group, organisation or educational visit, please complete a Group & Visitor – Risk Assessment form and notify the Cemetery Manager.

How to Find Us

The entrance to the cemetery grounds is from Cemetery Road which can be accessed from Victoria Road, opposite Victoria Hospital.  Please note there is no access for vehicles from the Stone Lane end of Cemetery Road, although some Satnav systems may direct you this way if using the postcode to find us.


Please park along Cemetery Road, but avoid parking in front of the Lodge or in the bay opposite the archway as this is used by hearses and longer based vehicles to access the cemetery under the archway.

There are several parking spaces located inside the cemetery near to the Children’s Section and Section 19.

Finding Your Way Around

If you are attending a funeral and/or burial, you will be met by a member of the Grounds Team, usually the Cemetery Groundsman, or directed by your Funeral Director.  If you are researching family history or visiting for the first time it is advisable to contact the Cemetery Manager prior to your visit to allow time to locate the correct records and assist with locating the grave.
