Murton Cemetery

Murton Cemetery is owned and managed by Murton Parish Council and is situated between the villages of Hilton and Murton in the picturesque Eden Valley, Cumbria.

The Cemetery is mown during the summer months and maintenance carried out as necessary.  In 2023 the Parish Council contracted with local charity Fixit4Eden to mow the Cemetery.   Minor maintenance and seasonal tidying is undertaken by volunteers, often on a parish “Boon Day”. Any faults noticed in the meantime should be reported to the Parish Clerk.  The paths were refurbished in 2020.

A memorial plaque wall is available.  Please contact the Parish Clerk for details and fees.
