Our cemeteries

We operate Rainsbrook Crematorium and the following four cemeteries in the borough:

  • Clifton Road Cemetery
  • Croop Hill Cemetery
  • Watts Lane Cemetery
  • Whinfield Cemetery

Our bereavement services team can help with all enquiries about funerals and cremations. Call the team on (01788) 533715 or email rainsbrook@rugby.gov.uk 

Vehicle access at council cemeteries

Parking on all cemetery roads is not permitted at any time, unless one of the following applies:

  • you hold a valid blue badge and can park without blocking the road for council maintenance vehicles
  • you are a registered stonemason who has the approval of the bereavement services team to erect or remove a memorial

Cemetery gates close up to one hour prior to a burial and only reopen once the service has finished.

Pedestrian access remains open to all visitors.
