FOR PARISHES IN THE GREATER BELFAST AREA
STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE ADMINISTRATOR OF MILLTOWN CEMETERY
Following the decision of the NI Executive to permit the reopening of cemeteries, Milltown Cemetery will reopen with a limited timetable for the foreseeable future.
This is based on the need for burials to continue while adhering to the restriction of ten people at a burial.
The Cemetery will open on Sunday 26 April and following Sundays from 10am until 4pm.
Thereafter, from Monday to Saturday, it will open from 2pm until 5pm.
Access will be mostly restricted to pedestrians only for the time being with the exception of a limited number of cars, for those who cannot walk long distances.
The Cemetery Office will remain closed. Staff will be working remotely to arrange burials.
For anyone visiting the Cemetery please continue to follow the requirement of social distancing.
These restrictions will be reviewed in due course.
