The history of Randalls Park Cemetery can be traced back almost 1,000 years. Its origins lie in an ancient estate that centred around a large, moated manor house. This was the most important residential site in the area and the name is taken from the family who lived here throughout the 14th Century.

During the tenure of the Henderson family (1856-1932) the site was the scene of many great public festivities, such as Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee on 21 June 1887, when 800 young people were entertained there and the Peace Celebration in July 1919, when a procession of 2,000 people made their way down the drive from the local town centre for an afternoon of tea, sports and dancing.

The Henderson's were forced to sell 100 acres of the estate by the District Council in 1932 in anticipation of the need to provide an additional burial ground for a time when there was no longer any space in the local cemetery.

The Lawn Cemetery was opened in 1950.

Randalls Park Cemeteryprovides a tranquil and secluded place to pay your respects to your loved ones but is easily accessible from a wide area. A unique feature is the Walled Garden – a reminder of Victorian prosperity comprising an area of some 1.5 acres and enclosed by a 12 feet high red brick wall. The garden has been imaginatively laid out as a Garden of Remembrance and plaques in memory of a loved one can be purchased to adorn the walls.

Many animal residents and visitors including a small herd of deer, badgers, swans, ducks, geese and woodpeckers frequent Randalls Park Cemetery.
