Cemeteries and Crematorium

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

Coronavirus update

It is now the law again for face coverings to be worn in our Crematorium and Cemetery chapels.  For those not exempt we request everyone complies and there are masks available at the entrances.


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.


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

Public conveniences

Available during office operating hours at Rose Hill and during services upon request at Mexborough.


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.   In all instances, cars must only use the cemetery roads, NOT pedestrian paths and other narrow walkways.

Care should also be is taken avoid obstructing access for other users, especially funeral cortèges, 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 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 welcome in the cemeteries as long as they are kept on a lead and not allowed to go onto memorials or graves. Dog fouling laws apply, so please clean up after your dog and take it home or place it in one of our bins.


Access: Our cemeteries are not locked which allows people to visit at their convenience.  However, we would not expect, and do not encourage people to visit during the hours of darkness.  The cemetery regulations can be found in the link to the right.
