The Town Council has records of burials in the Cemetery dating back to 1876. Records for plots (shown on the plan) are in the original hand-written ledgers. These can be inspected by arrangement. There is a charge for family tree research.
Tadcaster Town Council reserve the right to test all headstones for safety every five years or at any time if it is suspected that the stone maybe unsafe.
If you are concerned about the safety or stability of any memorial please report it to the Town Council. Under no circumstance attempt any remedial action yourself.
Some areas of footpaths in the Cemetery have been identified as requiring refurbishment, please take every due care and attention. A rolling programme of repairs to the Cemetery footpaths will be implemented, subject to the appropriate funding being available.
The Council accepts no responsibility for the health and safety of unauthorised persons, cehicles or other belongings in the Cemetery during the hours of closure.
Topping up of graves
From time to time sunken graves will be checked and topped up as required. If you have a grave that urgently requires topping up please let us know.
Exhumations are unusual and have to be carried out following strict procedures. We have published some Guidelines to help anyone who may be involved in one.
