We operate 19 cemeteries across the district:

Funeral at a cemetery

Your funeral director will fill in an internment notice with you when you book the burial and this will have the details of the grave in advance so that the grave can be prepared.

Some families participate in the funeral service, for example by taking part in the lowering of the coffin or back-filling of the grave.  If you or your family would like to do this, please discuss these arrangements with your funeral director before attending on the day.

On the day you will be met by a representative of the Council before the service is conducted by your chosen minister or funeral director.

You may want to call back to the cemetery after the service has finished - please leave an hour and a half before doing so to enable us to tidy the area.
