During the current Coronavirus situation, burials are still taking place and we have extended this to include a Saturday if required.
Currently our cemeteries remain open but we ask that you adhere to social distancing guidance if you decide to visit.
Any further service updates and disruptions can be found on the service disruptions page.
Ceremonies for all religious, non-religious and cultural traditions are available at our ten well maintained cemeteries. The cemeteries are managed and administered from the Bereavement Services Office located in Gateshead Civic Centre.
During periods of wet weather cemeteries may become waterlogged. In the event of bad weather it maybe necessary to close at short notice.
No dogs, other than guide dogs, will be allowed in cemetery chapel buildings.
