Panteg Cemetery is one of the three main cemeteries in the Borough of Torfaen in Wales (the other two are found in Blaenavon and Cwmbran.) The cemetery covers an area of approximately 20 acres. The first interment took place on July 23, 1906.[1] There is a Garden of Remembrance located within the cemetery.


The cemetery is directly accessed from the main road, The Highway, which runs from the Turnpike (the colloquial local name for the junction of Usk Road and The Highway) and down through the village of New Inn. The cemetery is bordered to the north by the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, on the east by the A4042 dual carriageway, to the south by the Coed-y-Cando housing estate, and on the west by the Highway road.

The cemetery has a memorial to 156 people who died during the First World War.[2] There are also 33 recognised Commonwealth War Graves within the cemetery.
