Cemeteries are located in Whitehaven (adjacent to  the St Bees Road), Hensingham, Beckermet, Netherwasdale and Millom.

The Council has five cemeteries which are located in Whitehaven (adjacent to the St Bees Road), Hensingham, Beckermet, Netherwasdale and Millom.

These cemeteries are all open to the public.

In Whitehaven cemetery there is a large section of the old cemetery that is maintained as a nature conservation area where many examples of unusual trees and plants can be found along with old headstones which reveal much about the history of the town.

Anyone seeking the grave site of a deceased relative can make enquiries to the office at the Crematorium who will be happy to assist, to locate the site, even of unmarked graves, through the cemetery records.
