Devizes Road Cemetery was opened in 1856 and to date there have been 13,892 interments including cremated remains. The London Road Cemetery opened one year later and to date there have been 24,631 interments, including cremated remains. There is a small Chapel on site in the Devizes Road Cemetery with seating for around 20 people; on the other hand the Crematorium Chapel is sometimes used for services of burial in the London Road Cemetery.

Buried in both Devizes Road and London Road Cemeteries, are casualties of the First and Second World Wars. A "Cross of Sacrifice" memorial designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield was erected after the Second World War in honour of all service war dead buried there. This fine memorial, 7 metres in height, is situated in the main avenue of London Road Cemetery.

The last new grave was dug in 2001, although there have been re-openings of existing graves where one partner has been buried. The last full burial took place in the Devizes Road Cemetery in September 2001; it is now full except for cremated remains plots.
