Interments are permitted from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 10am and 4pm. Where possible the cemetery is to be clear by 4pm to enable the sexton to close the grave. Twenty-four working hours notice must be given prior to the time fixed for an interment.

Summer Hours

We would like to make the latest time to book a burial at 4.00pm. Winter hours will resume when daylight saving ends.

Family Ash Interments

Most burials are arranged through funeral directors, but for ash interments organised by the family please contact the Council.

When phoning the Council, details of the deceased are taken for our records, and arrangements are made for the sexton to make an opening in which the family can place the urn. It is important to have the dimensions of the urn on hand so that the correct-sized opening can be made. The sexton will normally do the preparation early on the day of interment and leave a small shovel for the family to cover over the urn.

The sexton will return later to ensure that everything is left in a tidy state.
