Confederation of Burial Authorities'
Directory of Cemeteries and Crematoria in the
The Cemetery Research Group has collated the
first UK Directory of Cemeteries and Crematoria.
The Directory covers each local authority area
in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Cemeteries and crematoria are listed by owner,
and includes all local authorities and many
joint cemetery committees; parish, town and
community councils; religious denominations;
and private sector companies. Each cemetery
is listed with a date of establishment. Additional
nformation has been provided in the updated
Directory of 2001: the states of the site in
terms of land available burial, its size, and
whether certain burial facilities are available
('traditional' plots, lawned sections, woodland
graves and special baby and children sections).
This information, regularly updated, is now
available FREE through the Bereavement Services
