During the current Coronavirus pandemic, Godalming Joint Burial Committee is not only supporting our local residents, but has agreed with Guildford Borough Council's Bereavement Services that it will also support burial options for the residents of Guildford.

Eashing & Nightingale Cemeteries are open only for those visiting a grave or attending a funeral.  Please do not enter to take exercise, walk a dog or any other recreational activities.

Godalming Town Council is the burial authority for Godalming but exercises that power jointly with Busbridge Parish Council in the Godalming Joint Burial Committee. The Joint Burial Committee comprises of elected members from Godalming Town Council and Busbridge Parish Council. The Committee is responsible for burials which take place in the cemeteries, maintaining the cemeteries and cemetery buildings plus the upkeep of the cemetery records. 

Further details about the membership of the Joint Burial Committee together with details of its budget, accounts and payments made may be found by clicking here.

The agenda and minutes of the Joint Burial Committee meetings can be found on the agenda and minutes page of this website.
