A beautiful cemetery opened in 1856
Chapel of Rest
The Chapel of Rest is available for Burial or Memorial Services by the families of the deceased of all religious faiths and none. There is a charge for use of the Chapel.
We are now offering natural burials in a small area at the top of the main avenue and there is enough space for around 40 burials.
In a natural burial there is no headstone and each grave is marked with a stone (provided by Alnwick Cemetery). A small tree or shrub will be planted in an area against the boundary wall of the burial area. The body is not embalmed and coffins should be made of bio-degradable materials to afford as natural a return to the earth as possible.
Friends of Alnwick Cemetery
You can help us maintain this important community asset by becoming a Friend of Alnwick Cemetery. We are also developing a new burial area to the west of the existing cemetery to use when the current burial areas become full. You can also help us here by planting trees, shrubs and hedging.
We have regular workdays to keep the cemetery tidy, undertake new planting and make it a more wildlife-friendly space.

The Lodge Office contains comprehensive records of the people buried in Alnwick Cemetery. You can request a search of the register (by post), or can arrange to search in person. Please note that because of the delicate condition of some of the records, an unaccompanied search of the registers is not permitted.
