The Town Council is responsible for the provision and maintenance of two Cemeteries in;
Spennymoor (Rock Road) and Tudhoe (York Hill).
Crematoria services are also provided at the Durham Crematorium, where the Town Council is a partner of the Central Durham Crematorium Joint Committee.
The aim of the Town Council is to provide a quality, cost effective service in a sympathetic and caring manner.
Memorial Gardens have been created within both Cemeteries. They provide a peaceful environment for quiet contemplation within the Cemetery.
The Gardens were specifically designed to incorporate the four seasons of the year – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The gentle fountains add tranquillity to the area, the gardens are paved and level and offer easy access with car parking close by.
Memorial Plaques and Vase blocks may be purchased to commemorate a person whose ashes have been interred into the memorial garden or those that have been scattered elsewhere.Both are available to lease for a period of ten years, renewable after ten years if required.
Please contact the Town Hall, on 01388 815276, for further details.
A Cemeteries Information Booklet is available for download together with details on visitor access for both Cemeteries. For our most up to date list of fees and charges, click Cemetery Fees & Charges.
