York Cemetery will firstly open for the three days of the bank holiday weekend (Friday 8th May – Sunday 10th May) and have stressed most importantly that is will be for people to attend graves. It will then open at the weekends from 10am – 4pm. It will remain closed to the public on weekdays.

The play area will remain closed as per government guidance. We are also having to keep shut the toilets (including the baby changing area) as our cleaning contractors are not currently operating.
