South Road Cemetery


This page has information about South Road Cemetery and crematorium in Durham City

We have had to make changes to funerals and cremations - we appreciate this is a very important service and are working closely with funeral directors to ensure as little disruption as possible. Please see our changes to funeral and cremation services for more information.

The cemetery and Durham Crematorium are situated on a site covering approximately seven and a half hectares. The cemetery handles around 65 burials a year and is regularly visited by relatives and the general public.

The floral display, shrubs and trees provide a haven for wildlife and birds.

The cemetery has a Green Flag Award. These awards recognise well managed parks and open spaces for all to enjoy. The Green Flag Awards are the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.
