ChurchyardPhotoWombourneChurchYardThe Council is currently responsible for the maintenance of the closed churchyards at St. Benedict Biscop, Wombourne, St. Johns, Swindon and St. Pauls, in Coven.  If you have any enquiries regarding the standard of maintenance at these churchyards, please contact the Grounds Maintenance and Bereavement Services Officer.  For further information about the churches themselves, please use the relevant contact details below.

 

As part of our maintenance programme and to ensure that the closed churchyards we look after are safe places for the public to visit and work, we manage the safety of burial ground memorials by referring to management guidleines from the Ministry of Justice.  These guidleines can be found using the link below.

 

For details of other graveyards or churchyards in the district please contact the relevant Parish Council or the Rector/Vicar at the associated church.
