Stamford Avenue Cemetery, Royston (Cemetery West)

The cemetery off Stamford Avenue was built as an extension to Melbourn Road Cemetery and lies on the opposite side of the road with a disused chapel on the site. The older part of the cemetery containing the chapel is the responsibility of St John's Church for interments and the church holds the records.

The cemetery contains full burial and cremated remains sections. The cremated remains section is now at capacity and the cemetery has a small number of full burial grave spaces remaining, however there will still be grave re-openings and pre-purchased plots permitted within the cemetery.
