Cemeteries and crematorium

We are responsible for thirteen cemeteries and thirteen closed churchyards within the borough.

Bereavement services 

The early days and months following a bereavement can be a particularly difficult and stressful time. For many a memorial is very important when trying to come to terms with the loss of someone much loved.

Opening hours for all cemetery grounds are:

  • May to September: 8.30am to 8pm. 
  • October to April: 8.30am to 6pm.

Pedestrian access is available at all times.


Rose Hill, Conisbrough and Mexborough cemeteries have chapels within the grounds. Each chapel seats approximately 80 people with further limited standing room.

Public conveniences

Available any time during opening hours:

  • Rose Hill

Available only when a funeral is taking place:

  • Redhouse
  • Arksey
  • Conisbrough
  • Mexborough


Car parking is available at some of our cemeteries. However, except for disabled access, vehicles are only allowed within the grounds when they form part of a funeral cortege. When parking in a cemetery, please make sure that you are not obstructing access for other users or main areas.

For safety purposes the speed limit within all cemeteries is 10mph.

To maintain the appearance of our grounds, please do not drive or park on grassed areas.

Disabled permits

If you hold a blue disabled badge, we will issue a permit to allow you vehicle access into the cemetery. You will need to bring your disabled badge into the office, where a fob will be issued. The fob needs to be used to gain access and also to leave the cemetery.

A £15 charge is made for the use of this system


Children under 12-years-old are only allowed in the cemetery and crematorium grounds when accompanied by, and under the care of, a responsible adult.


Dogs are allowed on a lead and must be kept under control at all times. Dog fouling laws apply, so please pick up your dog's mess.
