Burials and cremations


  • North Watford and Vicarage Road cemeteries reopen to the public with normal opening times (9am - 6pm) - visitors are asked to follow social distancing guidelines. 
  • Toilet facilities are open from 9am to 5pm (they are restricted opening hours due to COVID 19 regulations to allow cleaning).
  • Due to recent changes to government guidance burials at our cemeteries can only accommodate a maximum of 30 mourners at graveside who must practice safe distancing at all times during the ceremony.
  • Our chapel remains closed at this time.
