Cemeteries

Amersham Town Council is a burial authority and is responsible for three cemeteries in the Amersham parish:

ST MARY’S CEMETERY

St Mary's Cemetery, Old AmershamSt. Mary’s Cemetery is now a closed cemetery meaning that no new plots may be purchased. However, we do permit re-openings of existing plots as well as ashes interments for families with relatives already interred.

THE PLATT CEMETERY

The Platt Cemetery, Old AmershamThe Platt Cemetery is a small walled cemetery located in Old Amersham. The Town Council has a policy only to allow residents of Amersham Old Town to purchase new plots. This is strictly enforced due to limited space. We will need to see proof of residency before authorising the purchase of new plots in The Platt Cemetery.

STANLEY HILL CEMETERY
