|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Kendal Cemetery, at the southern end of the town, in the lea of Kendal Castle, saw its first burial on 14 Sep 1855.
It extends to both sides of Parkside Road and contains sections designated as Church of England, non-denominational, and Roman Catholic. There is a section for the interment of cremated ashes.
There is car parking at the cemetery entrances, and a public W.C. is situated near the main entrance, behind the former cemetery lodge. (These former lodges are now private dwellings, and it would be appreciated if the residents are not disturbed, except in an emergency).
Water taps are available on the outside of the W.C., near the entrance, and at several points throughout the cemetery. Large 'wheelie' bins for rubbish, dead flowers etc. are situated at the two main entrances. This is a very large cemetery, and intending visitors are advised to check grave location details with the office before travelling to the cemetery. The Cemeteries Office is located in South Lakeland House in Kendal Centre.
