Burial Registers for the cemetery, dating from July, 1861, are kept at the Town Council Offices. Register searches require a minimum of name and year of death of the persons buried and may be made during office hours. Enquiries can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01531 632306 or in person at the Town Council offices in Church Lane, Ledbury.
The cemetery is open to the public every day of the year, on weekdays from 09.00 to 17.00 and at weekends and public holidays, although the pedestrian gates in Oakland Drive and New Street are always open. The council reserves the right to close the cemetery without notice if considered necessary (e.g. due to treacherous weather conditions).
