Kendal, Castle Street Cemetery

Castle Street Cemetery
Castle Street

Castle Street cemetery was opened on the 17th May 1843, and features a chapel which it is thought was designed by the well known Kendalian architect George Webster. The chapel was opened on the 12th of July 1845. The cemetery is now full and is under the management of South Lakeland District Council.

The chapel is a little on the derelict side and obviously hasn’t been used for a number of years.

The chapel is open during daylight hours, and houses the graves and tombs of many of Kendal's famous industrialists.
