Cars are allowed into the cemetery when the main gates are open. Please adhere to the speed limits, and please do not block access for other cemetery users when parking on site.

When a funeral cortege enters the cemetery it is under the control of the sexton or other authorised persons in attendance at that time. No vehicles (unless part of the funeral cortege) will be allowed in the cemetery when a funeral is in progress.

Dogs

Dogs must be kept on leads at all times. Please ensure they do not foul any footpath or grave. The Public Space Protection Order is in place on this site (section 67 Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014). This means that failure to keep your dog on a lead at all times may lead to prosecution under the Act.
