Burials and Cremations

The death of a loved one can be very distressing and there are arrangements that must be made before a funeral can take place.

We are committed to providing as much assistance as possible to guide you through this difficult time.

The three cemeteries that Mendip District Council maintain are:

  • Street (Cemetery Lane)
  • Shepton Mallet (Waterloo Road)
  • Frome (Warminster Road)

Glastonbury cemetery is owned by Glastonbury Town Council and Wells cemetery is owned by Wells City Council

Most funerals are provided through a funeral director who can provide a professional service. Some people may prefer not to use a funeral director, which is legal.

The former Mendip Hospital cemetery is looked after by the Friends of Mendip Hospital Cemetery.
