Cemetery

Radwinter Road Cemetery, Saffron Walden, CB11 3HU, is a peaceful space which offers a natural environment for all types of wildlife and as a result is an important nature conservation resource.

Please accept apologies for any inconvenience but it has been necessary to shut the Cemetery gates again today (22 August 2017) in order to preserve the space for its intended purpose.  Please contact the Cemetery Officer on 01799 516501 if you have any questions.

The Cemetery is open to the public every day and vehicles are permitted, at the discretion of the Town Council, to allow family and friends to visit.  Any time restrictions for vehicle access will be displayed on the Cemetery notice board.  A 5mph speed limit is in operation.

The Cemetery is divided into different areas;  lawn cemetery, traditional area, garden of remembrance and areas for youngsters. There is a separate section for War graves which are cared for by The Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  The refurbished Chapel is a place of great tranquillity and lends itself naturally to both a formal or relaxed service.  

Toilet facilities are available Monday - Friday 8am - 3pm. The nearest public toilets are in Hill Street in the town.
