Burials

A parish burial ground is located adjacent to the churchyard of St Nicholas in the centre of the village.

Enquiries should be addressed to the burials clerk through the Parish Chairman at:

For non-Parishioners all fees are doubled. (If you live in a retirement or care home but were previously resident in the parish immediately before you moved into the home you will be treated as a parishioner.)

Purchase of Exclusive Rights to Burial in a Grave

Please note that the purchase of exclusive rights does not confer title to the land occupied by the grave, but the right to be buried there.

Exclusive rights last for 99 years from the date of purchase and maybe surrendered at any time on return of the deed to the Burial Clerk

As the number of plots is reducing, there will be no more reservation of plots. Those who have already reserved plots will have plots allocated to them when the time comes.

Only tandem graves are sold at £200.

Interment fees are £50.

Headstones and Memorials

There is a charge of £50 for the erection of a headstone or any other type of memorial on a grave. The design of the memorial must be approved by the burial clerk.

For guidance, monuments must not exceed the following dimensions.

Burial plots - Monuments must be no more than 3 feet (0.9 metres) in height, including the base when fixed. The base must be no more than 3 feet (0.9 metres) by 2 feet (0.6 metres). To enable the ground to settle sufficiently headstones cannot be erected within 7 months of the burial, except in the case of infant burials for which headstones can be erected as soon as approval has been obtained from the Parish Meeting.

Cremation plots - These are located on Church ground. Please contact the priest in charge on 01858 880351.
