Ackworth Cemetery

About Our Cemetery

Located on Doncaster Road,  Ackworth Cemetery was first opened in 1941 with the first burial taking place in August of that year.   The cemetery was extended in 2010 and is open to residents and non-residents. 

In 2016 improvements were made to the roadways within the cemetery including a new access path to the new section.  There is a memorial garden with benches and a dedicated ashes section.

Only stonemasons registered with the Parish Council can carry out work in the cemetery. A list of these can be obtained from the Council Office.

Memorial Wall 

The wall is situation on the cemetery building, visible as you enter the main gate, keeping the building to your left and walk down the path.  See the section to the right for an application form.
