History

Windsor Cemetery, also known as Spital Cemetery, is the oldest of our four cemeteries and was first opened in 1854. When first opened it was set out as a traditional cemetery where full-sized memorials could be placed on all graves if required, with specific sections for the following different religious faiths:

  • Church of England
  • Non-Conformist
  • Roman Catholic.

The cemetery has links with Windsor Castle and the two army barracks based in the town with a number of Victoria Cross holders being buried there.

During the 1970s the cemetery was extended and the extension was set out as a lawn cemetery with specific sections for different religious faiths.
