At our cemetery sites, we
currently offer a variety of graves to suit the needs of the
public. Please see our link on the left hand
side for information regarding Memorials and the sizes and
types that are permitted within the cemeteries.
Shrubs, plants, trees and
flowers are not permitted to be planted over any grave within the
cemetery. This is to ensure a uniform, lawned appearance to
the Cemetery and to aid our Grounds Maintenance teams.
Please note that the
number of possible interments for each grave will be also
determined by it’s location within the cemetery. Soil
conditions within the site will dictate the full depth of the grave
and this may range from one to three interments.
This grave type is laid
to lawn and adjoins a pre-cast concrete raft. A memorial
stone may be attached to the raft and there is a border on the raft
in which additional floral tributes may be placed.
These are provided for
people wishing to be buried but who cannot or do not want to buy
the Exclusive Right of Burial for a grave plot. The family of
the deceased will then have a period of five years during which
they may purchase the Exclusive Right of Burial. After this
period, we may bury another unrelated person in the same
grave. No memorials are to be erected on an unpurchased grave
unless the Exclusive Rights of Burial and a Deed of Grant for the
Right to Erect a Memorial have been purchased.
These graves provide a
living memorial in an attractive, ecologically managed wildlife
area. We ask that coffins / caskets used in this area are
made of readily bio-degradable materials or that the body be
wrapped in a simple shroud. We prohibit the use of any
chemicals in preparing the body for interment in the natural burial
area and no memorials, tributes or markers are allowed in the
area. The grave position will be located
For further information
on any type of burial or to arrange a visit to the site to see the
areas first hand, please contact Bereavement Services.
