Please note: Cemeteries are administered by the Parks and Open Spaces Department and they should be contacted to make any arrangements as per the contact details in the table below.

Contact an Undertaker

Your first contact for funeral enquiries is the undertaker who can make all the arrangements for you, including: 

  • liaising with the council regarding the date and time of burial
  • opening a grave or buying a new grave

Arranging a Burial

Burials can be arranged with the staff at our council offices for cemeteries which are maintained by us.

The Cemetery Administrator’s Office is closed on Bank and Public Holidays.

This does not affect Bank Holiday Interment arrival times, 10.30am to 3.30pm.  (Please see Cemetery Management Rules and Regulations for full details of Opening Hours)

Burial Rules and Regulations

The Burial Rules and Regulations came into effect on the 1 November 2017.

Grave Subsidence

Grave subsidence refers to the appearance of graves ‘sinking’. This is an entirely natural process caused by loosened soil settling into place. Grave subsidence is a process that Council manages and rectifies, and it should not be cause for concern. Read more in the Grave Subsidence Information Sheet.
