Opening times

Dates Opening times

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.
