Cemeteries and crematorium

We are responsible for fourteen cemeteries and twelve 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.

Facilities

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 at Rose Hill

Vehicles

Car parking is available at some of our cemeteries and where vehicular access is possible we allow driving into the grounds for people with mobility issues provided speed limits are observed.  Care should also be is taken avoid obstructing access for other users, especially funeral cortages, and to maintain the appearance, dignity and respect of our grounds we would also ask drivers to not drive or park on or very close to graves or memorials.

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

Children

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

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.
