Cemetery

The cemetery working party looks after the council’s land located beside All Saints Church and running in parallel with the church’s churchyard. In contrast to the churchyard, the cemetery is a newer piece of land with more recent graves.

Anybody wishing to use the land to bury a relative or loved one must abide by the terms of the cemetery policy, which are strictly enforced by the council for the benefit of all users of this land.

Where applications need additional consideration this will come before the full council in a monthly meeting, to make a decision by vote.

The working party is run by Councillors Schofield and Barnsley.

In the first instance the main point of contact regarding an application and or application of the rules is Parish Clerk Riley, who can be contacted here.
