Dunstable Town Council is very proud of the town’s heritage and takes great care and effort in managing a number of Dunstable’s main historical features. As part of this commitment, the Town Council owns and manages Dunstable Cemetery.

In 2017 Dunstable Cemetery achieved Green Flag status at the very first attempt. Green Flags are awarded to open spaces and Cemeteries which meet high standards of management and maintenance. Dunstable Cemetery is one of nearly 2000 Green Flag sites across the UK. The Green Flag scheme is managed by Keep Britain Tidy. Achieving Green Flag status has helped keep the Town Council focused on the continuous development and improvement of this important and prestigious open space.
