Maidstone Cemetery


Most funerals will be arranged through a funeral director, who will take care of the bookings and arrangements for you.

But if you do want to arrange a burial yourself you will need to make an appointment with us. Call us on 01622 602656 or email bereavementservices@maidstone.gov.uk and we can go through everything with you.

See our Memorials and Prices page to find out the various costs with burials and cremations and details on how to pay.

Grave selection depends on availability and personal choice. There are three options:

  • Lawn graves, for people wanting just a headstone memorial
