With the recent reopening of the Cemetery Chapel the site can provide a beautiful and tranquil site for a range of community events, meetings, training and conferences. At Penarth Town Council we are delighted to have this space available for use withing the community. As a popular and important outdoor space the Cemetery provides a historic context for your event.
The first interment at Penarth Cemetery took place on 8th December 1903 and since then more than 11,800 burials have taken place.
The site was acquired on 2 March 1903 from the Right Honourable Robert George Lord Windsor (vendor) by Penarth Urban District Council. The vendor agreed to sell the land to the council for the sum of two thousand and two hundred and fifty pounds. The land consisted of 5 acres on the land at lower Penarth for use as a Cemetery. Further adjoining land was then purchased in 1923 as an extension creating the grounds you see today.
