Designed mainly in the 19th century, our cemeteries are traditionally divided into religious denominations with space allocated on the strength of a particular denomination in the locality at the time. Columbarium and ashes gardens were later incorporated.

These sacred places deserve respect and care.

Our cemeteries are open to the public during daylight hours - 7 days a week. Please take care when you walk in and around the cemetery as memorials may not be stable.
