The Town Council is responsible for the three cemeteries in the town, at Fordington, Weymouth Avenue and Poundbury Road.

You can now locate a grave in the Council's Poundbury and Weymouth Avenue Cemeteries through our easy to use Cemetery Searcher system.  We believe the Searcher is over 99% accurate, but the data we use is up to 160 years old - if you spot a problem with the system or have any general questions about the Cemeteries service please contact Julie Hollings on 01305 819035 or at
