There are a range of graves available in our cemeteries. More information about the different types of graves is available on this page.
Everyone must pay a burial fee, unless our burial charges list says there isn't one. Buying a grave is an extra cost on top of the burial fee. When you buy a grave, you're buying the 'exclusive right of burial'. This means no one else will be buried in your grave unless you give permission. The right lasts for 100 years. After this, it can be renewed.
It's important for you to keep your contact details up to date with us, so we can contact the grave owner if we need to.
Unfortunately, you cannot buy a grave in advance. This is to make sure that there's enough burial land available for immediate use, and so our staff have easy access to prepare new graves in our cemeteries.
There are rules about what can and cannot be placed on your grave, and these will vary depending on what type of grave it is. We can remove any unauthorised items without telling you first.
We cannot accept liability for any theft of, or damage to, personalised items or headstones in our cemeteries.
