Choosing a final resting place for your loved one
If burial is your preferred choice you can advise us whether this will be a new or existing grave.
For new graves the main decision is which cemetery to choose. If you do not already have a family grave we can advise where new graves are available, either in a church or council cemetery or a woodland burial site. Whichever you choose, your funeral director can advise you on the cost of purchasing ground and interment.
Not all council cemeteries have room for further burials. Pre-purchasing of ground in local council cemeteries is very limited and although ground may be purchased in advance, specific plots are not allocated until time of need. A Council will sometimes release plots for pre purchase but mostly they are assigned of time of need. Surcharges may apply for people living out of the area.
Mostly assigned time of the need after liasing with Church.
Woodland burial sites
These are mostly in council cemeteries and are allocated at time of need.
