Wilbury Hills Cemetery, Letchworth

Wilbury Hills is our flagship cemetery on the northern edge of Letchworth Garden City. It was planned to cater for the diverse needs of our community, with a mausoleum building and separate spaces for different religious denominations.

The cemetery provides a wide variety of burial options, from woodland and meadowland burials to family plots or niche interments. The non-denominational chapel is available for services or meeting hire for a small fee. The Council provides a sound and visual system for music and videos, although any music must be provided and operated by the Minister, Celebrant or organiser of the funeral.

The cemetery was built to solve the shortage of burial space in North Hertfordshire and has been described as a ‘model’ for future cemeteries. It was designed as an inviting, inspiring place that extended the green space of Letchworth and the development has won a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice.

As well as ongoing maintenance, further work is planned to landscape the grounds, manage the wooded area and develop further sections and buildings.
