The cemetery

This Cemetery has Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) graves within it.

There are 250 identified casualties buried in this cemetery from WW1 & WW2.

This is a lovely ‘old’ cemetery, it is home to an array of wildlife and many beautiful mature native trees.

The Cemetery was laid out in 1873-74 and extended later. It covers an area of nearly 23 acres. The cemetery was severely damaged by enemy aircraft during the 1939-1945 War due to its close proximity to Hull docks and heavy bombing.

There is a former chapel at the back of the cemetery. This is no longer in use and the building cannot be accessed. This building originally had the first municipal cremator to be used in the UK. First used circa 1904.

The Chapel is a listed building, it is an imposing structure.

Near the Chapel is an old Columbarium wall, this is where ashes were interred during the early to mid 20th century.


The Cemetery is only accessed via wrought iron gates located directly fronting Hedon Road (A1033 eastbound). There is pedestrian and vehicular access. Roads within the cemetery will take you by car to general areas only, walking may be required. Roadside parking only is available (no designated car parking spaces).

Some roadways and pathways are uneven. Please always drive slowly and carefully.
