Cemetery Update

As the current space within the existing cemetery off Cemetery Road continues to reduce the council have been working hard to make additional provision.

This work has been following 2 strands.

The first being the design and development of the remaining space within the current cemetery. It is intended to create a truly beautiful and peaceful area whilst providing residents with a variety of options for ashes entombment. The design work has been completed and the area will be laid out over summer 2019.

The second strand relates to the ongoing search for new cemetery land. As you would expect with all the development taking place around the town, this is not proving easy. The Sub Committee have considered a variety of sites but for various reasons, largely for geological and ownership reasons, these have proved unsuitable.

The council really do appreciate the local demand from residents for burial and interment options to be provided in the longer term within the town. We have worked hard to try and deliver this and will continue to explore options as and when they arise. 

We hope you like the design of the new area within the existing cemetery, this is the layout plan…..
