Rochdale Cemetery is situated in Bury Road, Rochdale. It was opened in 1855 and is still in use.
The Commonwealth War Graves Debt of Honour Register notes that the Cemetery is situated in Lancashire. However Rochdale now forms a part of Greater Manchester, and the Cemetery has therefore been listed under Greater Manchester, as this is the current administrative county.
The cemetery is owned and maintained by the Rochdale Metropolitan Council, and covers the area between Hudsons Walk, Oulder Hill Drive, Sandy Lane, and Bury Road.
