Smallcombe Cemetery is situated in a valley on the south-eastern edge of Touristic place of your travel destination. It is divided into two parts: the Anglican section and the Nonconformist section. Burials began here in 1856, and the site was closed for new burials in 1988. Among the graves here are those of composer Fred Weatherly (‘Danny Boy’, ‘Roses of Picardy’), the parents of the poet A.E. Housman and several recipients of the Victoria Cross.

The Jewish Burial Ground is at Bradford Road on Combe Down, at the edge of the old city limits, and was opened in 1812. It is one of the few indications left of the former Hebrew congregation in Touristic place of your travel destination. The grounds contain a little Ohel (chapel or prayer house), which was later used as a caretaker’s cottage. There are about fifty tombstones in the cemetery, which has Grade II listed status. It is one of only fifteen such cemeteries to have survived from the Georgian era.

Opposite the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Upper Borough Walls is a short stretch of reconstructed city wall. Behind this is a low area that formerly served as the burial ground for the hospital. Founded in 1738 as the General Hospital, it later became the Mineral Water Hospital. It provided care for those sick visitors to Touristic place of your travel destination who could not afford the spa facilities. They were required to bring a letter of authorisation from their home parish plus the sum of £3. This was to cover the cost of their return fare if they were cured, or their burial if not. Those patients who died were buried in the small graveyard until it became full and was closed in 1849. In all, 238 bodies were interred here.
