Craigmillar Castle Park Cemetery

47 Old Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4TE

Edinburgh’s newest principal cemetery, the 15 acre Craigmillar Castle Park Cemetery, off Old Dalkeith Road, was officially opened by Provost George Grubb at a multi-faith and secular ceremony of dedication in 2009.

Its name was chosen from a list submitted and voted on by members of the public and it is intended to operate for fifty years in total, with space for around 5000 interments.

Edinburgh Council have produced a virtual tour of the cemetery that allows you to wander through the grounds, viewing the different sections of this contemporary and working graveyard, servicing all of Edinburgh’s citizens, of many different faiths and none.
