Cemetery Locations

We maintain eight open cemeteries within New Forest. We are also responsible for the maintenance of a number of closed cemeteries and churchyards.

You can find full details for open cemeteries and closed cemeteries and churchyards below.

You can also locate an open or closed cemetery by searching our online map system.

Closed cemeteries and churchyards

Closed cemeteries or churchyards are burial sites that have been closed by an Order in Council under the Burial Act 1953 because there is no space left to dig a new interment grave or cremated remains plot.

However, there may still be space for cremated remains in family plots which are used for other members of the family.

Further cremated remains interments within existing plots may be possible. All requests need to be organised through the relevant episcopal body. These are not organised though us.

With closed churchyards, the responsibility for maintenance may be transferred to the relevant local authority. The closed churchyards transferred to us are listed below.
