Cemetery Locations

We manage the following cemeteries in the borough: 

We hope to open Iwade Cemetery, Sittingbourne ME9 8FP soon.

Murston Cemetery does not offer any new graves, only the re-opening of existing graves. A section of this site belongs to All Saint's Church.

The remaining cemeteries offer a full grave space in either a lawn or a kerb plot. For cremated remains, upright or flat memorial plots are available.
