Burials and cremations

We look after seven cemeteries across Swansea and the crematorium in Morriston.

Space for new graves is available at six locations; Morriston, Oystermouth, Kingsbridge, Rhydgoch, Danygraig and Coedgwilym.

Family burials in existing graves can take place in all of Swansea's seven cemeteries, though space remaining in Cwmgelli is becoming increasingly scarce.  Special areas have been set aside in each cemetery to accommodate the burial of cremated remains, with each plot marked by an appropriate memorial tablet.
