Cemeteries and Crematorium
From April 2021 construction work will be undertaken at West Cemetery, Carmel Road North to construct a new service chapel, which will provide:
- increased capacity;
- up to date facilities; and
- include a new car park.
In addition the existing crematorium will be fully refurbished to accommodate new cremators and ancillary equipment and allow the relocation of the cemetery and crematorium office.
All cremation services throughout the construction period will take place within the West Cemetery Chapel with bookings taken on the hour throughout the day and the funeral director will transport the coffin to the crematorium for cremation following the service.
Visitors are encouraged to park in the existing car park, where a temporary toilet facility has been installed and make their way to the West Cemetery Chapel for the service.
A plan to show the current layout and the route for pedestrians and vehicles is shown.

Following the service mourners are asked to make their way back to the car park and exit through the main gates, new signs have been positioned in the cemetery to show the direction of travel.
The Book of Remembrance Room has now relocated to the front of the crematorium building and continues to open daily from 9:00am -5:00pm.
