St. Tudno’s Churchyard

The churchyard, within the boundary wall surrounding the church, was for many years the main burial place for the people of Llandudno, whose coffins and gravestones had to be brought up the steep roads of the Great Orme. The earliest inscribed stones date from the 18th century and can be found close to the south wall of the church. The churchyard contains many interesting stones and carvings and some self-guided tours of the churchyard are available.

St. Tudno’s churchyard has been closed for burials for many years and the Church in Wales regulations do not permit scattering of ashes in churchyards. All plot holders are required to abide by the Church in Wales Churchyard Regulations. Please please contact one of the wardens or the Vicar if you wish to locate a particular grave in the churchyard. However, there is often confusion as to whether a grave “on the Orme” is in the churchyard or in the adjoining Great Orme Cemetery, which is administered by Conwy County Borough Council (01492 577732). Historic burial records for the parish are now held by Conwy Archives Service (01492 577550).

Great Orme Cemetery and St. Tudno's Churchyard

The large cemetery and the cemetery chapel are shown in the foreground of this photograph. Just beyond the cemetery are St. Tudno’s Church and churchyard, surrounded by a boundary wall.

The cemetery opened in September 1903 and the majority of burials after this time would have been in the cemetery rather than the churchyard.

St. Tudno’s churchyard is managed to encourage wildlife. In 2018 the Friends of St. Tudno’s Church gained a Communities Green Flag Award for the quality of the churchyard.
