The Padstow Town Council Cemetery Regulations apply to all visitors to Padstow Cemetery.   Although these regulations are a requirement for the management of the cemetery, the Town Council has made every effort to avoid restricting the rights and choices of individuals, whilst balancing the need to regulate for safe, tidy grounds that provide a reverential space for use by all.

The cemetery operates in accordance with the Local Authorities’ Cemeteries Order (LACO) 1977, as amended by the Local Authorities’ (Amendment) Order 1984 and such other regulations as may be made by the Secretary of State for the Department of Justice, from time to time.
