Houghton Cemetery

Houghton Cemetery was originally opened in Durham Road on the 1st March 1892. The grounds extended over an area of 5 acres and at the entrance a handsome half-timbered lodge was built which remains there today. The cemetery was enclosed by a wrought iron fence and the total cost of the cemetery development was £4000. Over the years the cemetery has been extended and it now covers an area from Durham Road through to Hetton Road.

Ward plans are available for Houghton Cemetery.
