The Cemetery for Ulverston occupies a site on the Bardsea Road near Dragley Beck, and was opened for interments, May 4th, 1878. There are three mortuary chapels, appropriated respectively to the Church of England, the Dissenters, and the Catholics. It covers an area of, about five acres, having a gentle slope towards the Bardsea Road, and is tastefully laid out. The cemetery is approached through a very pretty gateway, near which stands the Curator's Lodge built in the Gothic style from the designs of Mr. Grundy, architect, of Ulverston, whose plans were selected in open competition.
