Cemeteries

Dorking Cemetery, located on the A25 Reigate Road, is owned and managed by Mole Valley District Council (MVDC). Randalls Park Cemetery and Crematorium is owned and maintained by Dignity Funeral Services.

Dorking Cemetery

The cemetery was consecrated and opened in November 1855 and the 14 acre site contains a woodland burial area, Muslim burial area, children's plot and lawn cemetery where full burials and cremated remains interments take place.

Address

Dorking Cemetery, Reigate Road, Dorking, RH4 1QF

Facilities

There are public lavatories in the cemetery grounds and a number of water taps and watering cans are provided for those tending graves.

Opening times and access

The cemetery is open to the public from 9am until dusk seven days a week (including Bank Holidays). Limited parking is available just inside the main entrance but access for disabled vehicles can be arranged for Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am until 4pm.

Access outside of these times is possible by arrangement. For more information please email dorking.cemetery@molevalley.gov.uk or call 01306 885001.       

Burials

Full burials and cremated remains interments take place in the lawn cemetery and woodland burial area on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The woodland area offers a natural green burial alternative to the traditional and more formal burial where biodegradable coffins or caskets are used and, instead of a traditional memorial, a native tree is planted. These trees will eventually create a natural woodland setting enabling wildlife and plants to grow.

Chapel and cemetery buildings

A small, Grade II listed Church of England chapel is available for funeral or memorial services. Other buildings include a disused non-conformist chapel, the original mortuary and the cemetery lodge.

Searching for friends or relatives

MVDC is happy to assist people in tracing friends or relatives who they believe to be buried at the cemetery. No charge applies if a search only involves one or two persons. Please call us on 01306 885001.
