Burials are usually only permitted to take place in designated cemeteries, although in some cases they are permitted on large rural properties subject to approval from the local authority. If you don’t have an existing family grave or a pre-purchased reservation. We can arrange to purchase a new grave site in a cemetery of your choosing. Graves in most modern cemeteries are able to accommodate up to 3 interments subject to certain conditions and we will be able to give you guidance in relation to this

Burial Considerations

Here are some points that you should think about when considering burial:

  • You may already have a family grave or plot. We can arrange for this to be reopened and the headstone removed before burial
  • There are several types of cemetery to choose from, such as:
    • Lawn cemeteries.Here each grave is covered with grass and marked with a commemorative plaque placed horizontally at the head of the grave at ground-level and;
    • Monumental cemeteries.Where headstones or other monuments made of marble, granite or similar materials rise vertically above the ground and;
    • Woodland, or eco cemeteries.Here the original landscape with existing trees influenced the landscape architecture of the cemetery, and graves are fitted in among the trees
