Local Nature Reserve

Stroud Cemetery is an amazing place to visit – a peaceful graveyard that's also full of wildlife. It gives a fascinating insight into life in Victorian Stroud, providing the final resting place for thousands of local residents who helped make Stroud the unique and characterful town it is today. The cemetery is also a Local Nature Reserve, home to some very special Cotswold wildlife including rare lichens, beetles, badgers and glow worms. Our leaflet helps you discover some of the secrets of the cemetery.
