Welcome to the official website of York Cemetery. This is the place to find out about all of the cemetery’s business and social activities.
York Cemetery is a working burial ground. At the same time, it provides opportunities for conservation, education, and informal recreation within a protected environment close to York city centre. Trustees, staff, Friends, and volunteers all work to achieve the right balance between the provision of a community facility and support for the environment.
If your particular interest is genealogy and family history, you will want to visit the companion website, www.yorkcemeterygenealogy.co.uk. A knowledgeable and enthusiastic group of specialist volunteers maintain the website, which concentrates on this important aspect of York Cemetery.
