Fowlmere Village Cemetery

Information about Fowlmere Village Cemetery

Fowlmere Village Cemetery is situated less than a mile north of the village towards Shepreth at the junction where Long Lane meets Mill Road and Shepreth Road. Set in a peaceful location, the cemetery is enclosed by trees and hedging.

Fowlmere Village Cemetery is managed by Fowlmere Parish Council. The Parish Council is the Burial Authority.

The cemetery was given to the village by Mr Frederick Meadows Beldam Johns in 1911. As part of the gift Mr Johns had the Chapel built. In 2007 the Parish Council purchased a plot of land directly to the west of the cemetery to allow for expansion when needed.


Most burials are arranged through a funeral director who would contact the parish council on your behalf however enquiries may be made directly.

To arrange a burial or ashes internment please contact the parish clerk here

A memorial may be erected nine months after the interment – this time allows for earth resettlement. Permission is required for memorials including added inscriptions.

Other memorials, either at the cemetery or elsewhere in the village, such as benches or trees, may be requested. These will be considered on a case by case basis. Please contact the clerk.
