Burial and grave details
Burial and grave details for all five of our cemeteries are kept at Penrith Cemetery.
Grave purchasing is not restricted to Eden residents and covers a period of 50 years.
Care of graves
Care of graves is left to relatives to remove floral tributes and wreaths. However, wreaths are removed after funerals and Christmas wreaths are removed in February. Any other tributes may be removed if they become damaged.
Woodland burial area
Woodland burial area at Penrith Cemetery is located at the northern part of the cemetery and offers a 'return to nature' for those who would like an alternative to a traditional lawn grave.
Cremation is available at Carlisle, Lancaster and Workington, sorry we do not provide this service in Eden.
Interments need to be booked in advance so please give us two working days notice. They cannot take place on Good Friday, Christmas Day or public holidays, except in an emergency.
