About Us

We aim to provide families with the best possible service
through a difficult time.

Ipswich Cemeteries and Crematorium – A dedicated service provided by Ipswich Borough Council

Ipswich Borough Council own and run four cemeteries and the Ipswich Crematorium. Our experience has been gained over 160 years and we strive to provide families with the best possible service through a difficult time.

When a loved one passes away there are many things to consider and it is natural to have many questions. Our staff are very happy to offer support and advice before the funeral takes place and afterwards. They can assist with information about cremation or burial services, floral tributes, decisions about final resting places and options for creating a lasting memorial, through our stonemasonry services. We understand that people may have different wishes in terms of their funeral arrangements and we are able to accommodate both traditional and less traditional approaches to the service itself.

We can also provide information about maintaining existing graves and family plots. Our grounds are maintained with care and are open every day, although opening times will vary according to the time of year.

There is ample car parking available and we are easily accessible from all areas of Ipswich and beyond.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks for great service in regards to providing my wife’s headstone, for sending the photos and being so understanding & helpful.

Mr N Hayter

Many thanks for the stonemasonry works undertaken. We were overwhelmed with the craftsmanship and sheer beauty.

Mrs K Smith

Thank you so much for taking a photo of a family grave in the Old Cemetery as we live in Australia and had never seen the grave before.
