Acklam Cemetery

Acklam Cemetery is adjacent to the Crematorium. It has a total area of 23 acres with over 12,000 graves. Burial services can take place in the adjacent crematorium chapels, for internments in all of our cemeteries.

The cemetery is divided into consecrated and unconsecrated areas, so both religious and non-religious burials are available. The following types of grave are available at Acklam Cemetery:

  • lawn graves
  • public graves
  • baby graves
  • Muslim graves
  • woodland and meadowland graves

Opening times

Dates Opening times
Monday 16 October 2023 to Sunday 31 March 2024 8am to 6pm
Monday 1 April 2024 to Sunday 27 October 2024 8am to 8pm
Monday 28 October 2024 to Sunday 30 March 2025 8am to 6pm

Please note, these times are a general rule but may vary slightly depending on weather conditions. We want to maximise the amount of time that relatives can spend in the cemeteries but we must also consider safety during poor weather.

In the autumn, as the nights draw in, the closing times are changed when the sunset time gets within 10 to 15 minutes of the hour, or a little more if this is over a weekend. If the weather is going through a particularly dark and cloudy spell, we may bring the date of the change forward slightly to keep the public safe.
