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 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 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
Stanley Hill Cemetery has no restrictions on applications and plenty of space. There are special areas for Polish residents and interments of babies and young children. Stanley Hill Cemetery is a lawn cemetery with stunning hill top views and wild flower meadow. For more information on purchase of plots and organising an interment, please contact Zoe Richardson at the Town Council Office.
