Braddan Cemetery

Ballafletcher Road/Braddan Road, Braddan, IM4 4LB

As the churchyard of Old Kirk Braddan was full, the Braddan Burial Ground Act 1848 enabled the Churchwardens to purchase new burial ground off Braddan Road, a few hundred yards from the church. It was extended in 1898 and 1938, and is now the largest in the Isle of Man.

Next to the main gate is a Cemetery Office, an early Baillie Scott commission. A simple Chapel stands in the middle of the burial ground. It has a bellcote with a single bell (by T Hodges, Dublin, 1858) at the west end, and an east window also designed by Baillie Scott and representing the “Tree of Life”.

Henry Bloom Noble and Archibald Knox are buried in Braddan Cemetery.
