The Town Council maintains the 4 hectare Tower Hill Cemetery. The site has been used since 1857 and there are burial records dating from that time.

General access to pedestrians and for vehicles (to  the small car park) is Mon – Thur 9am to 4pm and Friday 9am to 3pm.

You can also request that the bollards are lowered for you to visit less accessible gravesides by car at other times but we require 24 hours notice. This service is only available Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm providing that no funerals are taking place.

In addition, the bollards in Tower Hill cemetery are lowered from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve (inc), from Good Friday through to Easter Monday (inc) and from Friday pm to Monday am on the weekends that Father’s Day and Mothering Sunday fall on.
