Cemeteries and crematoriums

The Council is responsible for three cemeteries and four closed churchyards. We also operate West Herts Crematorium in conjunction with four neighbouring councils. We also run an Adopt a Grave scheme so that unvisited graves are cared for.


Below is a list of the cemeteries that we manage.

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