From Tuesday 1 October 2019 cemetery grounds will close at 5pm, the last entry to the grounds will be 4.45pm 


Very rarely a body may require to be exhumed (to be removed from the ground). In order for an exhumation to take place, a licence from the Ministry of Justice must be granted. Approval will be required from either the Secretary of State or the Church of England, depending on the location of the grave and whether it is in consecrated or un-consecrated ground. The next of kin of the deceased and the grave owner will also have to grant permission for the exhumation to be requested. The process is undertaken with great care, diligence and privacy. Crematorium staff will be happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding exhumations.
