Plymouth is a major city in the south west of England. The city is well served by numerous funeral directors who can advise on traditional or non-religious funeral services and are able to meet the needs of Plymouth’s population. For families looking for alternative funeral arrangements green burials are also available. Funeral directors in Plymouth offer around the clock service, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to meet the needs of bereaved residents.
This thriving city is ethnically diverse and home to well-established Chinese and Muslim communities. Places of worship in the city include a Roman Catholic cathedral and Plymouth Minster, the largest parish church in Devon, as well as two mosques. The city is home to the Plymouth and Cornwall Islamic Centre. A second place of worship, the Piety Mosque in Greenbank Avenue, was opened in 2013 and offers a prayer and education centre for Plymouth’s Muslim community, housed in a modern building.
The city’s Orthodox Synagogue, built in 1762, is the oldest Ashkenazi synagogue in the English speaking world that is still in regular use.
Burials are available at four cemeteries managed by Plymouth City Council – Weston Mill, Efford, Longcause and Ridge Cross.
