Launceston Town Council is the Burial Authority for the Launceston Cemetery, situated off Moorland Road. The Cemetery is open to the public from 8am to dusk throughout the year. Visitors to the cemetery are asked to keep to the drives and paths and not to walk on any grave or interfere with trees, shrubs, flowers or wreaths. The whole cemetery is consecrated ground.
The Registers of Burials and cemetery plans are kept at the Town Hall. Please contact the Town Clerk if you have any queries or require assistance in tracing a grave.
The Town Council is also responsible for the closed cemetery in Dockacre Road, a much older cemetery which used to be part of St Mary’s Church. Dockacre Cemetery is not open to the public, unless by prior arrangement, accompanied by a member of Launceston Town Council staff.
