Linthorpe Cemetery

A peaceful oasis in Middlesbrough, Linthorpe Cemetery is steeped in local history and tells the story of the development of Linthorpe and Middlesbrough.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this special site. As well as being an important burial ground, it is a haven for wildlife and a local nature reserve.

In the southern section of the cemetery there is an almost complete canopy cover of mature trees. Most of these were planted in the 19th century. The dominant species are horse chestnut and sycamore with scattered species of pine, lime and oak. The cemetery is rich in bird life, both resident and seasonal visitors. Regular songbirds include the nuthatch, green finch, dunnock and siskin. There is some dead standing timber with luxuriant ivy growth which provides important nesting and feeding sites for tawny owls and great spotted woodpeckers.

Linthorpe Cemetery is managed by Middlesbrough Council's Bereavement Services.
