Horden Parish Council’s Thorpe Road Cemetery was opened in 1954.  In 1995 a remembrance garden with a teddy bear sculpture was built in the north side of C section, by Easington District Council on behalf of the Supporting Mothers of Infant Loss Experiencing Sorrow, (S.M.I.L.E.S.). This Garden was built by the group in aid of parents who suffered bereavement before 1984 when stillbirth and neonatal deaths from Thorpe Maternity Unit were buried at Thorpe Road Cemetery, leaving the grieving parents no specific place to mourn their loss and unable to place flowers.

The Cemetery has a car park and toilet facility.
