Due to essential maintenance the following services will be unavailable on Saturday 20 April:

Mangotsfield Cemetery

This cemetery is located off Westerleigh Road near Downend. It was established in 1880 and is the oldest of the cemeteries maintained by South Gloucestershire Council. It provides traditional, lawn and infant sections. View a plan of the cemetery.

There are existing cremation sections but there is no space for new cremation graves.  We are investigating the option of above ground niches for the interment of caskets of cremated remains to enable the council to continue to provide this service.

Space for new graves is limited therefore there is no option to pre-purchase a grave at this cemetery.

Location: Westerleigh Road, Downend, Bristol BS16 6UY
