Callington is one of the very few towns (or parish) in Cornwall to be a burial authority (i.e. has control over its own cemetery).
Callington’s cemetery is located on Liskeard Road which has fantastic views over Caradon and Kit Hill, it also has its own chapel which was fully refurbished in 2007 thanks to substantial grant funding. The Callington Heritage Centre and Town Band both enjoy rent-free accommodation within the chapel but it is available for private funeral ceremonies.
The cemetery was opened in 1874, originally residents were either buried in the consecrated section if Church of England or the unconsecrated section if Non Conformist. Today there is no such division.
For all cemetery enquiries please contact the Town Hall.
