About

Maldon Cemetery dates back to 1855, when the land was purchased by the local authority to create a new burial ground as the churchyards in town were full. While traditional, cremated remains and woodland burials still take place there, the older parts of the cemetery are both havens for wildlife and fascinating places to visit for the fine examples of monumental masonry.

The cemetery is also home to 21 Commonwealth War Graves with their distinctive white headstones, some of which are in a group near the second, more modern entrance, while others are scattered throughout the area among the memorials. Six of the Commonwealth War Graves relate to casualties from the First World War and 15 from the Second World War. Their numbers include Rita Mary Rose Turner, a WREN who served on HMS Midge and died in 1943 aged 19.
