COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the temporary closure of the Ardsley Crematorium Reception office, the ordering of memorial plaques is suspended until further notice to reduce non-essential contact. Any orders placed prior to the closure will be fulfilled as soon as possible. Funerals and the booking of funerals are unaffected. 

The Friends of Wombwell Cemetery will not be volunteering during the restrictions in order to keep volunteers and the community safe. Therefore, the Community Hub is closed until further notice. Regular patrols will continue to be carried out and the gates will be opened and closed as normal.
