Welwyn Hatfield Lawn Cemetery
The Welwyn Hatfield Lawn Cemetery was opened on Monday 2nd April 1984 by the Lord Bishop of Hertford. The landscape of the cemetery is that of a lawn, which means only headstones are placed at the head of the grave space. The size and shape of the memorials are constrained to ensure a unified landscape and that the grass is mown and tendered for. For further details please see our Memorials.
The majority of the cemetery was consecrated by The Right Reverend Kenneth Pillar and the Arch Deacon of St Albans on 27th March 1984 according to the rights of the Church of England. However there are sections of the cemetery which are not consecrated which facilitate for differing faith burials, including Islamic faiths. For more information please Cemetery Services.
We understand that choosing a loved ones final resting place can be extremely daunting and emotional. The Lawn cemetery offers a variety of cremation plots to best stand as a remembrance for those who have passed away.
All plots must be purchased at the time of burial and all funerals, including cremated remains, must be booked through a funeral director or Funeral Arranger. Welwyn Hatfield Cemetery Services provides an NAFD approved list of Funeral Directors and Arrangers. Direct booking can unfortunately no longer be made.
For more details about the different plots offered please see our Burial Options [1MB].
The Lawn houses a Chapel which is available for funeral services. The chapel is non-denominational and is available for services before a burial takes place. The room is suitable for approximately 50 people and contains an organ and stereo system. Specific needs can be catered for provided sufficient notice time is given.
Toilet facilities are also available between the hours of 9am and 4pm. It is important to note that toilets will not be accessible when the chapel is in use.
Bus 366 stops outside the entrance gate of the cemetery.
The Lawn Cemetery is located less than 1 mile from junction 2 on the A1M.
