Sandgate

Sandgate Cemetery was opened in 1881 and has serviced the burial and cremation needs of Newcastle to this day. As a not-for-profit community organisation, we strive to provide consistency in everything we do whilst ensuring you and your loved ones have access to dignified services and memorialisation.


People visiting from a NSW hotspot:

Northern Cemeteries requests that all people visiting a Northern Cemeteries site to attend a funeral or for other purposes adhere to the current health directives of the NSW Government and not attend if they live, or have visited a NSW hotspot in the last 14 days.

Due to the recent wet weather, vehicular access into the Lawn area of the cemetery is currently closed, although pedestrian access is still available. Thank you for your understanding.

Gate Opening Times: 6am – 6pm non daylight saving; 6am – 7pm daylight saving

Office Hours: 9am – 3pm Monday – Friday
