There are currently no changes in place for Cemetery grounds over the Bank Holiday period.
There are sometimes exceptional circumstances when we have to close the cemeteries to vehicles at short notice.
If it is necessary to close a cemetery to vehicles, a notice is placed on the Cemetery gates advising the public. As soon as it is safe to do so the Cemetery gates are opened to vehicles.
The cemeteries can be accessed by pedestrians when closed to vehicles but we would urge people to exercise caution when visiting our cemeteries in adverse weather and to ensure they wear appropriate clothing and footwear to avoid falls and injury.
