Find a grave

Individual section maps showing exact grave locations are not available for public use.

The Kirkdale Cemetery section map will help you find your way around and make it easier to find section locations.

Top tip: If you have a grave number, look on the back of newer headstones in your section which will help you to get closer to your chosen grave, as they will often have a grave number inscribed.
