Duffield Cemetery Lodge

Duffield Cemetery Lodge

Located on Hazelwood Road, Duffield Cemetery was built in 1895 and is home to three beautiful Grade 2 listed buildings, The Chapel, The Lodge and The Committee Room. The Cemetery is open for burials and interments and has twelve burial blocks and a large formal garden of remembrance. There is a large area adjacent to the formal garden of remembrance where visitors can sit and reflect, taking in the view across to Turnditch and the whole of the Ecclesbourne Valley. There are also allotments located on the site.

The Cemetery is very important to all individual families and for this reason the Parish Council does not allocate plots to users in the cemetery, but encourages individuals and families to choose their final resting place within the cemetery blocks themselves. Families may pre-purchase their plots and as with plots purchased at time of burial an exclusive right is granted of up to 50 years for the plots chosen.

The Cemetery Chapel can be used for small funerals and can accommodate up to 46 people. There is a fee to use the chapel for funerals, charges for its use can be found in the document below. The Committee Room is used for Parish Meetings.

All Cemetery enquiries are handled directly with the Assistant Clerk through our main office, call 01332 842740, 07514 871801 or email cemetery@duffieldparishcouncil.gov.uk

More information about purchasing a plot in the Cemetery, costs, and Cemetery rules and regulations, can be found below.
