 All Council cemeteries have been closed to the public as of today Monday, 30 March 2020, and until further notice. 

Under the new Government legislation cemeteries must be closed and can only open to facilitate funerals.

Council said: "The Council understands that these measures are very difficult for many families who are grieving and want to visit the graves of loved ones. We continue to work closely with the Churches and undertakers in relation to funeral planning and cemetery arrangements and appreciate the co-operation and understanding of the public at this time."
