  1. Good morning, I am trying to find the location of my Father’s grave in Otley cemetery. I have a plot number (412 in S section) but I am not sure of where abouts this will be as he died before I was born. Please can you help me. Is there any maps I can look look at online.

    1. I’m trying to locate my great uncle’s grave in section S of Otley cemetery but, of course, I’ve no idea where that might be – can anyone help, please?

        1. Good morning Mike
          I am looking for a relative who was buried in 1896 in Otley cemetery. I have a plot number of E,251.
          I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction to find this when I visit the cemetery?
          Many thanks in advance

          1. Hi Lorraine,
            Enter the Cemetery through the main gate off the Otley to Pool Road, walk up the main drive until you are the facing the chapel, the section to your right is Section E.

            Regards
            Mike.

    2. Hi Morris,
      Section S can be located by going through the main entrance on the Otley to Pool Road, take the first path to the right off the Main Drive, the first section of graves is Section I, the second small section and the third larger sections are Section S, it is directly opposite the WC and the Old Mortuary Building.

  2. We dont have any complete maps of Otley Cemetery, however this is a municipal cemetery so they may have a map at the Bereavement Services, Farnley Hall, Leeds. tel- 0113 378 8196, or at least explain the layout of the cemetery.

    regards
