Corsham has three cemeteries that are cared for by the Town Council: The Chapel Cemetery (sometimes referred to as Ladbrook Lane Old Cemetery or the Closed Cemetery); Ladbrook Lane Cemetery, which has been in service since the early 1960s, and Lacock Road Cemetery which came into use in early 2022.
Ladbrook Lane Cemetery
Corsham Town Council manages and maintains Ladbrook Lane Cemetery as a peaceful and attractive resting place to serve the residents of Corsham.
The cemetery is situated along Ladbrook Lane, between Lacock Road and Gastard, and was laid out in the 1960s after the adjoining Chapel Cemetery was closed for new graves. The layout offers a range of interment choices, such as lawn, traditional and cremation plots.
Applications for purchase of plots, burials and monuments are administered by Town Council staff, who can also help find records of family history for burials that have taken place since 1964.
Pre-1964, the cemetery was run by St Bartholomew’s Church and they hold the records. St Bart’s can be contacted via Church House, on 01249 701720 or email. Further information on St Bart’s and other local churches can be found at greatercorshamchurches.org.uk.

Lacock Road Cemetery
Lacock Road Cemetery, which opened in 2022, covers 0.9 hectares (2.2 acres) and will be used well into the next century as a final resting place for many of Corsham’s residents. It is designed as a peaceful place to visit and is maintained in an environmentally sensitive way. The cemetery includes a small, wooded area with wildflower planting and new hedging
We allow memorial trees and benches in designated parts of the cemetery. Please contact the Town Council if you are interested in adding to the peace and beauty of this site.
