Totnes Cemetery

Totnes Cemetery lies in a peaceful, semi-rural setting in Follaton within walking distance of the town centre of Totnes. The address is: Plymouth Road, Totnes, TQ9 5LX

The Cemetery is run by Totnes Town Council and anyone may apply to be buried in its grounds. Space is available in consecrated land for burials or cremated remains. There is also a section for members of the Catholic faith. At present we do not have areas for other faiths but would be happy to discuss your requirements with you and will help if at all possible.

 Cemetery Works 2019 

Totnes Town Council has a legal obligation to ensure that all who enter the cemetery are safe to do so.

As part of this we are required to carry out inspections of memorials at regular intervals. We intend to undertake this work in January 2019. Any new memorials and a small number of memorials classed at ‘at risk’ during the 2017 safety checks will be inspected, recorded and checked for stability. Should any grave owner wish to be present when the testing is carried out would they please contact Totnes Town Council on 01803 862147 to arrange a time.

Totnes Town Council has also applied to the Diocese to repair a number of memorial stones found to be unsafe - the public notice of the proposed works is here 

Totnes Town Council is undertaking a programme of works to the paths in Totnes Cemetery starting in January 2019. This work will include resurfacing the main tarmac paths in the older and new sections, and turning some of the lesser used paths back to grass. The work is expected to start on 14th January and last several weeks.

Please take care in the cemetery whilst contractors are carrying out this works. If you have any questions please contact Totnes Town Council on 01803 862147 .
