Cheltenham's cemeteries and crematorium

Our new chapels and crematorium will open on 4 March 2019.

The two new chapels can be found just to the east of the current cemetery, with seating for 150 people and 75 people respectively. With designs based on a traditional Cotswold barn and a beautiful setting below the escarpment we believe they will be appreciated by this and future generations.

Read more about the new buildings and the story of how they were created.

There is also a smaller cemetery in Charlton Kings.

Please come along and share this historic occasion with us. Just approach the cemetery through its current entrance on Bouncers Lane and follow the signs. Find us on Google Maps.
