Great Malvern Cemetery has been in use since 1861, when it was first opened as a result of the Metropolitan Interment Act which permitted burials in consecrated ground outside churchyards. The Cemetery was designed by WH Knight, a Cheltenham architect. The cemetery extends to 14 acres and
contains about fourteen thousand graves. New burials are mostly on the northern side where there is vehicular access from Madresfield Road, while the oldest Victorian graves lie to the south east.
In the centre of the cemetery there are non-Conformist and Anglican chapels linked by an archway with tower and spire above. The ornate Anglican chapel is still in use. At the Wilton Road pedestrian entrance there is a Lodge, now used as an office.
The Malvern Family History Society has undertaken a transcription of the older burial registers.
