The Cemetery dates from 1850 and is a beautiful sandstone area which has been designated an area of Special Scientific Interest. Approximately 120 species of wild flowers can be found on this site, and information boards are widely available. There is a strict management plan for the cemetery which has been produced by the Shropshire Wildlife Trust in order to ensure the continuing wildlife presence.

Local Primary School children have planted thousands of spring bulbs, particularly in the newly extended woodland area. Vast areas of crocus bulbs can be seen in the older part of the Cemetery.

No work can be carried out in Bridgnorth Cemetery without legal paperwork being obtained first.  You may not be aware but only the owner of Exclusive Right of Burial to a burial plot has the automatic right to be buried in the plot that they 'own', only the owner can request that the plot be opened to have someone else buried in, only the owner can request that a memorial be placed upon the plot and only the owner can request that an additional inscription be added to an existing memorial.  Following the demise of the owner, it would be necessary to transfer the ownership to someone else before any of the above requests could be considered.

The following will give you more information about ownership of Exclusive Right of Burial to a plot:
