This new cemetery, a little way up Little Harries Lane (off Kirby Road) in Ripon, was officially opened in June 2015 by Councillor Nigel Simms, the Mayor of the District of Harrogate and Councillor Pauline McHardy, the Mayor of Ripon.
Work started on the 3.6 acre site in 2013 following substantial investigation works to identify a suitable location. The cemetery, which has space for over 600 full burial plots, will provide enough burial provision for around 35 years at the current burial rate. There is also space to develop a second phase in the future.
The cemetery has additional space for cremation remains plots, as well as an area proposed for woodland burials, offering a natural burial ground option. A rainwater harvesting system has been installed to minimise the impact on the environment and will provide visitors with water through two traditional water pumps.
This new cemetery will provide burial space for the residents of Ripon for many years.
The cemetery occupies a very peaceful setting for families and friends to pay their respects to their loved ones.
