|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Lagård Cemetery was built and inaugurated in 1834 and the oldest section remains as it was at that time. In 1868 the cemetery was extended south to Cemetery Road. In 1882 it was extended south from Cemetery Road to Paradise and Hillevåg water. It now covers an area of 45,000 m². In 1875, the railway was routed through the southwestern part of the cemetery, and approximately 300 graves were moved. The cemetery is divided into two parts, each side separated by Cemetery Road with a tunnel connecting the two within the cemetery. There are separate entrances from bordering roadways.
The cemetery is located across the road from Stavanger Train Station.
Lagård Cemetery was formerly for parishioners of St. John, and St. Petri Varden. The cemetery is no longer linked to any religious institutions and is open to anyone living in Stavanger and of any religious affiliation.
