Purchasing a grave

Normally, your funeral director will help to make the arrangements to purchase a grave. Some families might wish to make their own arrangements. You can contact us directly and we will be happy to help you.

We offer four different types of grave - lawn (headstone memorial), Woodland, Wild Flower, and kerb. The Exclusive Right of Burial is bought for a 75 year period. These are known as 'purchased graves'.

Unpurchased grave

An unpurchased grave is where the right to burial cannot be bought and we have total control of the grave. There are no memorial rights on unpurchased graves so no headstone or other memorial can be put up.

Purchased grave

A purchased grave is where the Exclusive Right of Burial can be bought for a period of 75 years.

The owner of the right of burial can decide who will be buried in the grave and memorials are allowed in line with our cemetery regulations.
