How to get to Linwood Cemetery
Linwood Cemetery is accessible by foot at all times. There are foot entrances around the whole perimeter of the cemetery and the border between Bromley Park and Linwood Cemetery has no fencing.
The main gates are open at 7.30am and closed in the summer at 8.30pm and in the winter at 4pm. Parking in the cemetery carpark around the closing time is not advised as you may be locked in.
Please report any issues about entrance to the cemetery to the City Council help line on 941 8666.
Buses: 5, 51, 40, 23, Orbiter (timetables may vary on public holidays and routes maybe changed due to the earthquake rebuild. Check Metro Bus for details.)
Taxi: Always ask for the cemetery on Butterfield Avenue, off Buckleys Rd, behind Bromley Park as there is a lot of local confusion over the names of the cemeteries in this area (and its a long walk back from the ones on Linwood Avenue!!!)
There are a number of other cemeteries in this area, including the Bromley Cemetery, Woodlawns (both often called Linwood Cemetery because of their locations off Linwood Avenue) and Ruru Lawn Cemetery. Please click this link to see the locations of these.
