Cemeteries & Bereavement

We understand that the death of a loved one can be a very confusing and upsetting time. These pages contain information on how the Council can help you.

Cemeteries

Fenland District Council manages the following Cemeteries and Burial Grounds:

  • Walsoken Cemetery
  • Wisbech Cemetery
  • Eastwood Cemetery
  • Chatteris Cemetery
  • Whittlesey Cemetery
  • Wisbech St Mary Cemetery

There are some other cemeteries in Fenland, but these are managed by Town and Parish Councils.

Our cemeteries are open to the public for pedestrian access 24 hours a day. If you need to access the cemetery by vehicle, you will need to apply for a key by emailing bereavement@fenland.gov.uk or calling 01354 654321. Keys will only be issued to disabled people or those with legitimate health problems.

We want our Cemeteries to be clean, tidy and attractive. If their appearance is not up to standard, please report it to us.
