About this Cemetery

This Cemetery is the town's main site for burials and is open every day of the year including Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Year’s day for the public to visit their loved ones. Traditional and Lawn grave burials and appropriate memorialisation are available along with interment of cremated remains with both headstone or flat memorialisation options.

The site contains many fine trees including Arbutus (Strawberry Tree) and occupies 15 ha (37 acres) of chalk downland in a picturesque and tranquil setting on the edge of the Downs. The cemetery has also been designated a Site of Nature and Conservation Importance (SNCI).

The Cemetery Lodge, Chapel and Arch, which formed the old entrance from the Offington roundabout, was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was an English architect known for his work on Liverpool Cathedral, Cambridge University Library, Waterloo Bridge, Battersea Power Station and designing the iconic red telephone box.

Public conveniences are available inside the Cemetery close to the Offington Roundabout and were refurbished in early 2017. They are open daily during the cemetery opening times.

The Cemetery lodge now houses Durrington Cemetery Memorials – Professional Stonemasons who have a showroom and office in the cemetery lodge. For further details please refer to:
