Roselawn Cemetery and City of Belfast Crematorium bus service
Last updated: Thursday 26 March 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to suspend the free bus service to and from Roselawn Cemetery and the City of Belfast Crematorium.
These measures are in place with immediate effect.
We run a free bus service on the first Tuesday of every month and every Friday for older people (aged 50 or above) travelling to and from Roselawn Cemetery and City of Belfast Crematorium.
On Tuesdays, our staff will meet the bus and can help passengers find their loved one's grave or memorial tree.
The Tuesday bus service also visits Reflections Coffee Shop at the City of Belfast Crematorium where refreshments are available to purchase.
Where does the bus leave from?
The Tuesday service leaves from the Spectrum Centre, 331 Shankill Road, at 9.45am. The return bus leaves the cemetery at 12 noon and drops passengers back at the Spectrum Centre at 12.30pm.
On Fridays, the pick-up point is at 2pm at the bus stop at 5 Donegall Square South (back of City Hall) and you will return at approximately 4.30pm.
Who can use the bus service?
The service is free to residents aged 50 or above who live within the council's electoral area. The bus seats 15 people on a first-come, first-served basis. It can also accommodate wheelchair users, if you inform us when booking your place.
