Cemeteries and crematoriums

The Council is responsible for three cemeteries and four closed churchyards.

We run an Adopt a Grave scheme so that unvisited graves are cared for.

We also operate West Herts Crematorium in conjunction with four neighbouring councils. Please visit - A New Crematorium for West Herts - Overview & Latest Updates - for information about the new crematorium in Hemel Hempstead.



Below is a list of the cemeteries that we manage.

There are Gardens of Rest for cremated remains at each of the cemeteries.
