The Cemetery 

All Blaenau Gwent cemeteries are working cemeteries and, burials take place regularly. In addition, other activities are being carried out e.g. monumental masons could be working at a graveside near to your family grave. Also, contractors might be repairing roadways, gully cleaning, carrying out building maintenance and cemetery improvements.

We constantly strive to improve the facilities for visitors to each of our cemeteries.  All activities such as the placing of headstones, kerb surrounds etc., must be authorised by the Environment Directorate.

Sometimes, perhaps, on your visit you will find the ground conditions very wet and muddy due to the climatic conditions in which we live. We do apologise for this; however, we are making every effort to alleviate the conditions by placing land drains within each section of the cemetery. You might find that topsoil is needed on your family grave to bring it up to the level of the surrounding ground. If this is indeed the case, please contact the sexton, who will undertake the work for you. 

On other occasions you might find graves being re-opened for a burial next to your family grave. Every effort is made to minimise any disruption to you and your family. We are only concerned that your visit to our cemeteries is as comforting and consoling as possible.

Please Contact C2BG 311556 who will be happy to assist with your enquiry. 

For all bookings and enquiries, please note our office hours below: 

9:00 – 13.00

We are able to undertake family searches on behalf of members of the public. Requests for searches can be made in writing or via e-mail. 

To enable an accurate search to be carried out it is essential to supply the names and exact dates of death of the deceased.

From 1st April 2015 there will be a £58.00 administration fee for a burial search.
