The cemetery in Kingsway (formerly known as Kiln Street and later as Cemetery Road ) was opened in 1856 and burials in the churchyard of the Parish Church of St Mary (then known as St Andrew) then ceased. All Church of England burials for the whole of the large parish of Mildenhall were conducted here Until the daughter churches in the hamlets or "rows" of the parish were established - St Peter's at West Row in 1874 and St John's at Beck Row in 1875. The Baptist and Methodist chapels in the High Town of Mildenhall have never had graveyards and so made use of the Kingsway Cemetery but the chapels in Beck Row, Holywell Row and West Row continued to Use their own graveyards.
No original records or maps survive except for the burial register (now deposited In the Suffolk Record Office) for St Mary's Church.
The last burial took place in January 1970 but names continued to be added to the monuments until 1975. The cemetery was formally closed on 23 October 1972 and control then passed to the Mildenhall Parish Council and later to the Forest Heath District Council.
The Mildenhall "New" Cemetery opened in 1962 along Thetford Road, Mildenhall on the outskirts of the town.
