adnor Street Cemetery is also know locally as Clifton Street Cemetery. The cemetery is under the management of the Swindon Borough Council.
Inside the grounds is a small chapel - this is not used for weekly worship, and was just used when a funeral took place; nowadays it is opened on occasions for displays by the Friends of Radnor Street Cemetery
, who also hold tours of the cemetery - to see their website Click here
. Outside the chapel is a War memorial (no names).
The cemetery covers a large sloping area, incorporating some thirty three thousand internments. The land is divided into sections, and these sections divided into plots. The graves should have markers - orange/red brick like objects - but over the years many have broken or been lost. Our first visit to this cemetery coincided with some considerable maintenance work being undertaken. One of the people involved was very helpful and spent some time helping us locate specific graves - thanks Richard. He told us that, sadly, there had been a lot of vandalism in the cemetery - no doubt by people who think they have nothing better to do with their time.
If you would like a photograph taken of a grave and know where it is located, we will be happy to go and take one for you. Please contact us with your details.
