These are the directions from the undertakers : On the approach to Blyth there is a roundabout with a large Asda store – take the 2nd exit which is the last into Blyth and you will see Cowpen Road signposted from there. Follow the road past an industrial estate with Homebase and other stores situated there. Just after the industrial estate the cemetery is signposted on the right hand side directly opposite the Shell garage.


Hello all,

The postal address is Cowpen Cemetery, Cowpen Road, Blyth, NE24 5SZ
