Lovely place, very peaceful. If you are going to the crematorium, it's either a nice stroll or a drudge in the heat. Car parking is available (well, on the road) if you wish.

A very interesting and beautiful place, especially on a fine day. There are usually people there to help you and they are very knowledgable about the cemetery. There are quite a few famous people buried there. Some amazing monuments and tombs!
