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.

Burial and cremation fees

Details of costs for burials and cremations at our cemeteries and crematorium.

Self arranged funerals

You can arrange a funeral without the services of a funeral director. Some people take comfort from being involved - either partly or totally - in the arrangements for the funeral of a loved one.

Burials on private land

Burials usually occur in cemeteries or churchyards, however some individuals choose to be buried in private land, such as farmland, or private gardens.

Choosing a funeral director

When choosing a funeral director to arrange a funeral it is important to ensure that you are satisfied with the service you receive; the funeral director should supply an itemised estimate of all costs.

Safety in council cemeteries

We are responsible under law for safety in our cemeteries, though individual headstones are the responsibility of family or friends of the deceased person.

Record searches of municipal cemeteries and crematorium

We are able to take requests to search our municipal cemetery and cremation records for details of burials that have taken place.
