Following a cremation many people wish to have the ashes buried in a grave space, this allows family and friends somewhere to visit to remember their loved one and also provides a location for the placing of a memorial stone or tablet to commemorate the deceased.
A number of different options are available for the burial of cremated remains (ashes).
CHAPEL GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE
The Chapel Garden of Remembrance, located at Eashing Cemetery, provides for the interment of cremated remains (ashes). Each plot allows for the internment of up to two sets of ashes and the purchase price also includes the grave preparation and the permit fee for a memorial. Memorials which are placed on the paving stones by each plot can either be 450mm x 450mm tablets or 450mm (w) x 450mm (h) headstones.
Smaller plots (2′ x 2′) are available in the main cemetery areas at Eashing and Nightingale Cemeteries which will accommodate two caskets of cremated remains.
TRADITIONAL FULL SIZE GRAVES
A full size grave space in the traditional area of either Eashing or Nightingale Cemetery can accommodate up to six caskets of cremated remains.
A child size grave space in the traditional area of Eashing Cemetery can accommodate an additional two caskets of cremated remains (ashes).
NATURAL BURIAL AREA
A full size plot may be purchased in the Natural Burial area of Eashing Cemetery for the burial of up to four caskets of cremated remains. Grave spaces in the Natural Burial can be used for the burial of cremated remains. Unlike in the traditional area of the cemetery, no stone headstones or memorial tablets are permitted in the Natural Burial area, although wooden markers are allowed.
OLD GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE
The old Garden of Remembrance which was opened in 1966 is no longer operational for new interments. However, memorial plaques may still be erected on the garden wall. Please contact 01483 523575 for details.
