Location Information

The Cemetery is very close to the well known church of Saint Michael. All visitors to the Cemetery will pass the vehicle entrance to the church and Mission area from the main road, and only 300 metres further on is an unmetalled vehicle track. At the point where the track sweeps round to the right (approximately 300 metres from the main road) a dirt track leads to the Cemetery metal gates, with the CWGC plaque fixed to the right side brick pier.

The majority of the Commission graves are located within 50 metres to the near right of the gate, and one single grave is located on the left boundary (at the approximate mid point) and two other individual graves are located approximately 100 metres diagonally to the right (in amongst the many private graves which make up the majority of this communal area).

Blantyre Church of Central Africa Presbyterian Cemetery is open Monday to Friday between 06:00 and 18:00.
