Garden of Peace

The grounds contain an area dedicated to infants and babies. This area features a small outdoor shelter which can be used as a chapel or for funeral services.

Locating graves and ashes memorial sites

Lawn graves and ashes memorial sites are relatively easy to locate as the allotment number is marked on the bottom right hand side of most plaques and the numbers run in sequential order.

The practice of marking numbers on monuments was not introduced until the late 1900's. As the monumental area is quite old, not all of the monuments are numbered, however the monumental area is quite small so the rows could be easily walked.

Not all graves have plaques or headstones, so this should be kept in mind when locating a specific grave by number.

For further assistance locating graves and memorial sites, please visit during office hours.
