Durrington Cemetery -

A Place of Serenity and Remembrance


Durrington Cemetery stands as the primary site for burials in the charming town of Worthing. Open every day of the year, including holidays like Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day, the cemetery invites the public to visit their cherished ones in a peaceful and comforting environment.

A Haven for Tranquil Reflection


Spread across 37 acres of chalk downland on the edge of the Downs, Durrington Cemetery offers traditional and lawn grave burials, providing a fitting space for memorialization. The site embraces the interment of cremated remains, offering both headstone and flat memorialization options. The landscape, adorned with magnificent trees, including the Arbutus (Strawberry Tree), creates a picturesque and tranquil setting for those seeking solace.

Designated as a Site of Nature and Conservation Importance (SNCI), Durrington Cemetery is not only a final resting place but also a sanctuary for biodiversity and natural beauty. The cemetery's historical significance is evident in its architectural elements, including the Cemetery Lodge, Chapel, and Arch designed by the renowned Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the mind behind iconic structures like Liverpool Cathedral and the red telephone box.
