Burials and graves

Buying a grave

The cost of arranging a burial is made up of 2 elements:

  • the cost of leasing the section of land or grave
  • the cost of opening the grave which is the burial or interment

At present new graves are allocated as required from section F.

This is in the centre of the cemetery. You may select a grave but there will be a selection charge. There is an extra cost for graves alongside pathways or at the front or end of a row.

Graves are sold on a 75-year lease period.

The number of burials that can take place in a purchased grave is a maximum of 2, or 6 if for cremated remains.
