The Exclusive Rights of Burial for a grave space can be purchased in advance in order to secure a plot. Alternatively a plot can be allocated at the time of booking a funeral. Please note that plots are allocated as next available and cannot be chosen.
The Rights are granted for a period of 50 years and this allows the holder to nominate who can be interred (buried) within the grave and also gives the right to place and maintain a monument on the grave.
Full burial plots can be dug for one, two or three coffins and then up to six sets of ashes. Cremated remains (ashes) plots for up to three sets of ashes can also be purchased. Cremated remains plots are available in both London Road Cemetery and Woodman Road Cemetery, full burial plots are only available in Woodman Road Cemetery.
For further information please contact the Cemeteries Administration on 01277 312500 or complete our Cemetery General Enquiry online form.
