Re-development of the cemetery building to convert it into a visitor centre is now complete and is open and available to use. Temporary seating has been installed to enable us to open this new facility earlier than anticipated, which will be replaced later in the year. The building has been designed with views across the cemetery, providing mourners with a place of quiet contemplation away from the elements, as well as a meeting place prior to services taking place.
Incorporated into the design, situated to the rear of the building is a fully DDA complaint WC accessed via a hard landscaped pathway, and maintenance store to the front. The outside water supply has also been restored.
In response to requests to have an area where loved ones, not necessarily buried at Sprowston Cemetery, could be remembered a memorial garden and wall has been constructed. The wall will hold up to 180 plaques made of slate and engraved in a choice of silver or gilt lettering. The flower beds will be planted in the autumn and four new benches placed in the garden overlooking the wall, all of which are available for sponsorship.
The visitor centre and toilet will be unlocked / locked at the same time as the cemetery gates.
For enquiries about memorial plaques, bench or shrub donations please contact the Council office. Memorial fees and application form are available on this website under Cemetery.
