East Cemetery is our oldest cemetery and has been ‘closed ‘ for many years as  there are no new grave plots available. Many deed holders for this cemetery are returning to their family graves and having cremated remains interred, as this is the current trend.

Heworth Burn cemetery is our newest cemetery and opened in May 2002 as an extension to Heworth cemetery, which ‘closed’ for any new graves towards the end of that year.

Birtley Cemetery and Crematorium are in the same location, where as Saltwell Road South separates Saltwell Cemetery and Saltwell Crematorium
